Hubei crawfish enters Dubai market
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.
