IN BRIEF - Chinese port of Ningbo plans to import 1,200 tons of Russian king crab annually

Thursday, March 09, 2023

The Chinese port of Ningbo-Zhoushan has opened for the first time to import king crab from Russia, in addition to ports in Shanghai and Tianjin that already handle crustaceans. 

Recently a Russian ship docked at the port of Ningbo Zhoushan and offloaded 74.3 tons of blue crab for customs clearance, according to an updated WeChat page of the port of Ningbo Zhoushan.

The crab was to be shipped mainly to Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other cities in mainland China, as well as to the Hangzhou seafood trade market.

Live Russian king crabs sell for up to 750 yuan per kilogram ($110 per kg) in markets in China.

According to Ningbo-Zhoushan Port, in order to expedite transportation and delivery, the port will provide 24-hour customs clearance and priority screening to ensure "zero waiting" for the live product.

Last month, industry sources said king crab prices in China fell late last year due to oversupply from Russia and COVID controls. Now it seems that prices are rising again.

Russia is focusing on the Chinese market after losing access to Western markets due to the conflict in Ukraine.
