December witnesses a peak season of catching sea crabs in the coastal area of Lianyungang, Jiangsu Province. The aquatic product markets are flourishing day and night, with tens of thousands of kilograms of crabs being classified, packed, traded and then shipped all over the country. Among a large number of sea products, swimming crabs – with a scientific name of portunus, are well-known for their rich nutrition and delicious taste. The products are to meet not only the immediate needs of consumers, but also to meet the need of the forthcoming New Year and Spring Festival holidays.
