China’s fish product processing sector is going through numerous problems, according to a report recently published by the China Industrial Research Network.

One of the main reasons is the lack of manpower, increased costs and insufficient investment in research and development. Also, data on 2018 show a slight drop in volumes of processed and exported fish products.

A priori, this sector appears to be strong in terms of scale, although it may crumble as its main advantage lies in low cost manpower, and this will fade away at any time.
