Dalian, The "2022 China Merchants Taiping Bay Port Area Fishery Resource Augmentation and Release Activities" organized and implemented by the Liaoning Provincial Institute of Marine and Fisheries Sciences, was held in Dalian Taiping Bay Port Area on the 4th. Held, 12 million fish and crab fry were "seeded" in Taiping Bay.
Proliferation and release refers to the activities of artificially releasing live aquatic organisms such as seeds and seedlings into the ocean and other public waters. The activity is selected to be carried out during the fishing moratorium, so that the released fry can obtain sufficient growth time and increase the survival rate of the released species.

The theme of this activity is "Conservation of aquatic organisms and building a sustainable blue homeland". The expert team conducted random sampling and counting and specification inspection of the released seedlings on site. After passing the acceptance, the seedlings were transported to the ship. Afterwards, the release vessel sailed to the designated sea area for centralized release.
