The first catch of seafood from the East China Sea hit the market in Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province on Sept 17 after the annual fishing moratorium was lifted.
The harvest contained primarily small yellow croakers, hairtails and shrimps.
According to Cai Linting, the head of the office at the Ningbo aquatic products wholesale market, nearly 50 metric tons of seafood entered the market on the day.
More than 16,000 fishing boats from Zhejiang returned to port to take shelter from Typhoon Nanmadu, the 14th typhoon of the year, before 6 pm on Sept 17.
Due to the impact of Muifa, the 12th typhoon this year, seafood from its neighboring island city of Zhoushan were partly shipped to Ningbo for trading, which also increased the seafood volume in the city.
