China - Lanshan Port Fish Farm Locations - Updated

5 January 2022

Members calling or passing Lanshan port, China, should note the latest updated Circular from a correspondent, Huatai Insurance Agency & Consult Service Ltd, Qingdao, showing the reported positions for fish farms, which is available here in English and here in Chinese.

The correspondent reports on recent incidents, highlights the additional geographical locations of fish farms, and strongly advises that:

“In route planning, kindly take into account the fishery farms described in our latest circulars, with special attention and caution to area A and D (revised). In addition, before the ship’s arrival at Lanshan port, kindly check with the local agent about the route to enter the anchorage and the port, as well as the distribution of the fishery farms.”

In addition, they advise that the Master pay careful attention when entering these areas and ensure suitable lookout is in place as well as ensuring close cooperation with the VTS centre and pilot station.

Members should seek latest information on fish farm activity from their port agents when visiting Chinese Ports. And in the event that Members make contact with or navigate through a fish farm, they should immediately contact the Club for assistance.
