Part of: Coastal Zone '91


Situated in the central part of the West Pacific rim, the East China Sea is the most important one of the four China Seas. About 1/3 of the coastline, 2/5 of the estuaries and 1/2 of the islands of the country are in the East China Sea. So it is very important to deal with the management and development of these marine resources. Management means to adjust and coordinate the behaviors of different departments concerned in the East China Sea, to organize and join marine resources investigations, planning, protection, and legislation, etc. Development means to obey natural principles, and to construct a multigoal development system, which includes the six major development districts such as port-industrial, fishery and recreational districts, etc..
