Organized by the China Aquatic Production Chamber of Commerce (APCC) and the Zhanjiang Association of Aquatic Products Import & Export, and co-organized by China Aquatic Products Processing and Marketing Alliance (CAPPMA), Global Aquaculture Alliance(GAA) and China Council for the Promotion of International Trade Zhanjiang Committee (CCPIT Zhanjiang Committee), the Expo, under the theme of "Better Aquatic Products, Better Life" and with the tenet of "bringing Chinese aquatic products to the world", is aimed to build the world’s fourth-largest international professional aquatic expo and China’s second largest one, a brand expo of Zhanjiang.
Since 2014, the Expo has been successfully held for four times, and its scale and influence has been continuously growing, with intentional trade volume steadily climbing up. As a big aquaculture event demonstrating the whole aquaculture industry chain, the Expo has become one of China’s most professional aquaculture events, and more than 60% of China’s domestic shrimp transactions are concluded during this Expo. The Expo has become the first choice of professionals ranging from aquatic products wholesalers, aquatic products purchasers to presidents of aquaculture associations and presidents of restaurant and catering associations, thus forming a benign interactive pattern of “Dalian/Qingdao Fisheries & Seafood Expo in the north and China International Aquatic Products Exposition in the south.”
This highly professional Expo, widely advertised, held in the right place at the right time, and with high popularity, numerous buyers and high quality, makes significant contributions to the realization of the goal of both Zhanjiang and China’s water and marine aquaculture as to “sell and buy aquatic products around the world”.

The Aquatic Expo is highly professional and is of high quality, which is demonstrated from its organizers, undertakers, exhibitors, presentations, products on display, the signing of contracts and the theme activities.

The sharing of aquatic resources in the Expo provides a one-stop communication platform for producers of aquatic products and seafood materials and manufacturers of fishery equipment. We commits building the world’s fourth largest international professional aquatic products Exposition.
An Aquaculture Event Demonstrating the Whole Aquaculture Industry Chain
Focusing on the exhibition of aquatic breeds, drugs, feeds, finished products, processed products, frozen products, and processing and packaging machinery, refrigerating equipment and logistics, the Expo demonstrates the whole aquaculture industry chain, from seed rearing to finished products, from the industry to the enterprises, and from production and processing to the service platform and related supporting industries. At the Expo, the Zhanjiang National Foreign Trade Transformation and Upgrading Demonstration Base of Water and Marine Products and National Water and Marine Inspection Center are also exhibited, highlighting the strength and position of the whole industry chain of Zhanjiang’s aquaculture. The display of professional high-end technology and machinery equipment at the Expo, including the intelligent automated shrimp peeling machine, the intelligent automated fish-slicing technology and the aquatic product rapid-freezing technology, together with the display of deep-processed aquatic products with high technology content, including ready-to-eat travel food, fish-scale collagen masks, astaxanthin, health care products and drugs provide a professional high-end sales & purchase platform for the exhibitors and purchasers.
An Event with Distinct Aquatic Theme
At the Expo, a series of colorful live activities with distinct themes have been successively presented, adding a bright color to and enriching the content of the Expo. These live activities include World Shrimp Industry Forum, Global Aquaculture Summit, China Aquaculture Development Summit Forum, the GPB Certificate Award Ceremony of Zhanjiang Global Procurement Base of Aquatic Products, the BAP Tilapia Certification Ceremony organized by GAA, the Briefing Session on the Cooperation in Production, Education and Research between Aquaculture and Universities, the shrimp dimsum banquet with the most diners in the world, and Zhanjiang Innovative Seafood Cooking Contest.
An Event Leading the New Normal of the Industry Trade
The Expo integrates domestic and foreign trade into one, generating both domestic and export sales, transforming itself from a procurement expo to an expo integrating both sales and purchase, which greatly promotes the regional cooperation between domestic and foreign aquaculture industry, creates more trade possibilities, and helps enterprises make full use of both domestic and foreign resources and both domestic and foreign markets, thus to promote the development of the industry within an even bigger scope and to lead the development of the aquatic economy and trade.
An Aquaculture Event with Strong Flavor of the Times
Breaking the old idea of “expo being booth exhibition”, the Aquatic Expo offers attendees a new experience of Expo full of vigor and strong flavor of the times.
The Introduction of DIY Interactive Activities
The Expo cooperates with JD.com, Inc. to jointly organize a series of theme activities. Certificated by World Record Association officials, a total of 1291 diners at the same time enjoyed together the “Cantonese shrimp dimsum banquet”(with shrimps as the major materials) , successfully creating a world record of “a Cantonese shrimp dimsum banquet with the most diners in the world”. The shrimp banquet with over a thousand diners attracted Zhanjiang citizens and gourmets and culinary enthusiasts from every corner of the world to communicate with each other. The First Live Cooking Contest of Cantonese Dishes was also held at the Expo, with three finalists awarded, which was browsed by more than 100,000 people from more than 21 prefecture-level cities within the province. Zhanjiang Pavilion Jingdong also coordinated with the Expo and conducted “seckill activity”, achieving sales of more than 20,000 pieces of seafood products.
The introduction of APP helps to realize an never-ending Expo
The introduction of APP helps to realize an never-ending Expo. Cooperating with www. Mr-Guangdong. com, the Expo launched “Zhanjiang Aquaculture Mobile APP” (Mr-Guangdong APP). Users of the APP can, by scanning the barcodes of the exhibits, purchase products, add products to favorites, manage clients and experience real-time communication. Besides, by using the APP, the users can lock their target purchasers and effectively manage them, thus realizing 365-day everlasting trade both online and offline. During the Expo, the APP was downloaded up to 10,000 times. The “Internet + Expo” pattern of the Aquatic Expo breaks the restriction of time, distance and space, and the Expo has become an everlasting online aquatic Expo.
The international fresh vitality injected into the Expo
As an important platform for the communication and cooperation between domestic and foreign aquaculture industry, the Aquatic Expo is attracting increasing attention and participation of the world. Since the Expo was first held, the number of overseas exhibitors has obviously increased, the scale of the international section of the Expo is becoming bigger and bigger, and the level of the Exposition is becoming comparable to that of other international expos in the world, which can surely satisfy the requirements of exhibitors of high-end expos. In the meanwhile, due to the lack of shrimps as the materials for domestic export processing enterprises, the overseas exhibitors of this session of the Expo are not only purchasers. Instead, quite a number of suppliers from major aquatic countries such as Vietnam, Ecuador, Indonesia and so on are also attracted to the Expo, the international transactions during the Expo no longer being restricted to procurement only, but integrating both procurement and supply. In the fourth session of the Expo, the largest economic and trade delegation was the Vietnamese delegation, which was composed of 73 members from the enterprises, industry associations and chambers of commerce of the country, among whom, more than 20 were aquatic products exporters and suppliers. During the period of the Expo, the Certificate Award Ceremony of National WTO/SPS Aquatic Product Appraisal Base was also held, which will bring the government, aquaculture associations and enterprises together to further cope with foreign countries's technological trade measures, to protect the interests of the Chinese aquaculture industry with international rules, and to promote healthy and sustainable development of aquaculture industry both of Zhanjiang and the whole country.
