Changjiang Weekly - - TOP NEWS - By Zhang Quanlu

On July 27, a de­liv­ery of 5,000 craw­fish reached its desti­na­tion in Dubai on an in­ter­na­tional flight op­er­ated by China South­ern Air­lines. The fresh­wa­ter crus­taceans sell at a high price of RMB 735 per kilo­gram.

This batch of 5,000 craw­fish weighed 270 kilo­grams, and they are the first batch of grown-in-China craw­fish to en­ter the Dubai mar­ket.

Ac­cord­ing to the sup­plier, craw­fish is be­com­ing more pop­u­lar th­ese days in Dubai. With a huge im­port po­ten­tial, its pop­u­lar­ity has also af­fected prices. For ex­am­ple, a 750gram bag of craw­fish sells for 299 Dirham ( around RMB 551). By com­par­i­son, one kilo­gram sells for only RMB 100 or 120 lo­cally in China.

Many dif­fer­ent kinds of aquatic prod­ucts from Hubei have been de­liv­ered re­cently to South­east Asia, Eu­rope and the Amer­i­can con­ti­nent by China South­ern Air­lines.
