Updated: 2019-08-13

A group of local officials led by Leng Xuefeng, mayor of Lushunkou, inspected the development situation of the kelp processing industry and rural tourism in Lushunkou, Dalian, northeastern China's Liaoning province, on July 23.

During the inspection, Leng said that relevant government departments should resolutely prohibit and combat illegal emissions from seafood processing enterprises, guide enterprises in abiding by the law and complying with regulations, and work to minimize the impact on the environment.

Kelp breeding and processing is a traditional part of marine algae breeding in Lushunkou. Kelp breeding in Lushunkou takes up about 2,650 hectares of sea area.

As of the end of July, 320,000 tons of fresh kelps had been produced in Lushunkou, and it is thought that the output value could surpass 400 million yuan ($56.67 million).
