(DALIANNEWS)- The city's Yuyan Reef sea area has been regarded as the national-level fisheries genetic resources reserve, according to Dalian Ocean and Fisheries Bureau several days ago.

About 37 kilometers off the coast of Dalian in the south, Yuyan Reef covers an area of 471.95 hectares, mainly protecting varieties of marine life such as seriola lalandi, verasper variegates, paralichthys olivaceus, chlamys farreri, strongylocentrotus nudus, apostichopus japonicus, haliotis discus hannai Ino and hemifusus tuba.

Up till now, the city has a total of five national-level fisheries genetic resources reserves in Sanshan Island, Ocean Island, Yuan Island, Zhangzidao Island and Yuyan Reef, occupying a total area of up to 5,525.27 hectares.

The reserves not only generate enormous social and economic profits, but also protect the city’s aquatic wildlife and biological environment.
