China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

China be­gan a sur­vey on May 21 to de­ter­mine the num­ber and dis­tri­bu­tion of en­dan­gered fin­less por­poises in the Bo­hai and Yel­low seas. The sur­vey is a pre­lim­i­nary step in set­ting up a re­serve in the area. The Chi­nese Academy of Fish­ery Sciences will send a sur­vey ship to the Yel­low Sea for 10 days, start­ing on May 24. The sci­en­tists will col­lect in­for­ma­tion on the por­poises, along with data on tem­per­a­ture, salin­ity, dis­solved oxy­gen lev­els and the pH level of the wa­ter.
