In 2012, Quanzhou only 4 ocean-going fishing vessels, in 2014 to 33, as of the end of 2015 has 54, a few years operating waters from the North Pacific and Western Pacific to the African fisheries cooperation project development, has achieved in the sea, Deep sea full coverage. More importantly, from September 2014 onwards, the city's ocean-going fishing boat back to Quan unloading, the real realization of the Quanzhou ocean-going fishing zero breakthrough for the deep processing of aquatic products to provide adequate supply of raw materials. In 2015, Quanzhou port offshore fishing products of the discharge volume has jumped to nearly 3 million tons, ranked second in the province, many of Zhangzhou area of ​​canned fish manufacturers to buy raw materials from Quanzhou.
Ocean fishing fish sell good, fresh high, suitable for the whole fish into a can. Blue Jianhua told reporters last year, the company exported nearly 5,000 tons of canned fish, of which half of the raw materials from the ocean fishing.
