China Enterprises Help Brunei build a Fisheries Research Center

Date of issue:2019-02-25 Author: Click:

A row of white-roofed houses near the perong reef in siribaga Bay, the government's National centre for research and development in fisheries, has been in a semi-standstill for a long time because of a lack of technology. With the Advancement of the Belt and Road Initiative, Chinese companies came to Brunei with their experience in fisheries technology and management, and the research center became lively again.

At the centre for fisheries research, the global times saw large pools of fish and fish that were being bred using fertilized fish eggs. There are also some "milk powder" for the cultivation of fish seedlings in the pool-juvenile nutrients, rotifers, algae, etc.. "The nutrition of the fry is very important, as is the milk powder that feeds the baby," Hai Shi Tong Fishery(Brunei) Co., Ltd.'s chairman Liuxilei told reporters. Treating fish fry, like treating their own children, raising fish is a very happy thing. "

As a key project under the framework of "Brunei-Guangxi Economic Corridor", Guangxi Haishitong Fisheries(Brunei) Co., Ltd. was established in Brunei in 2016 to engage in the breeding, breeding, acquisition, processing and sales of marine aquatic products. Today, Haishitong has set a number of "first" in the area of Brunei's fisheries and aquaculture: the first export of foreign fish product containers, the first large-scale fish fry breeding base, and the first deep-water net box breeding base.

The economy has long been dependent on oil. Due to the drop in oil prices in recent years, the government has proposed the "2035 ambition" to promote economic diversification, of which fisheries is one of the key industries for development. When a delegation of the Brunei government went to Guangxi Haishitong Food Company in 2016, Liuguangming, the second minister of the Ministry of Finance of Brunei, said: "The proportion of fish eaten by the Brunei people is large, but the local fishery can not meet the needs of the people's food fish and has always needed to be imported. I hope that Chinese companies will help the local fishery development. "



Liu Xilei told reporters that the foundation of Brunei's fisheries farming is very weak. After Brunei, everything starts from scratch. In order to lay a solid foundation for offshore deep-sea aquaculture in Brunei, Haishitong Company has built 12 deep-sea aquaculture cages with a single capacity of 6,100 cubic meters or more and collected Brunei marine aquaculture environmental data in the offshore sea areas of 12 to 19 kilometers. Including water flow, wind speed, waves, climate change, water quality changes, etc.. "We all learned to dive because sometimes we have to work in a box with a diameter of 25 meters and a depth of 12 meters, and the water depth is 27 to 57 meters. The first stage of each net box is to raise 100 tons to 130 tons of finished fish. As of October 2018, Haishitong collected about 300 tons of processed fish and exported the first frozen container to Canada in July 2018. For the first time, Brunei's aquaculture fish export was realized, which was the first step for Brunei's fishing industry to explore the international market. Take the first step.

After the breakthrough in fish fry and finished fish farming, the Brunei government hopes to build a larger cooperation platform in the future to achieve long-term common progress in the Chinese fishing industry. According to the development plan of the Ministry of Finance of Brunei, the Haishitong fishery project will be used as a support for cooperation in fisheries and scientific and technological cooperation in China, and Brunei will be transformed into an ASEAN fishery R&D center. At present, Haishitong leads the Brunei scientific research institutions such as Brunei University, Brunei National Fisheries Development Center, Brunei Institute of Technology and Education, as well as Chinese research institutes such as Shanghai Ocean University and China Institute of Aquatic Sciences to create a platform for exchanges and cooperation in Chinese fishery technology. To enhance the overall scientific and technological level of Brunei's fishery development. During the interview, vice president Abid of the University of Brunei happened to come to haishitong to discuss the details of cooperation. Abbey told reporters that the University of Brunei has the strength of basic research, marine science majors, but no breeding specialty. The cooperation between Brunei research institutions and Chinese companies has opened up a new model that will promote deeper maritime cooperation between the two countries in the future and cultivate relevant talents.
