sea 01China’s agriculture ministry has called for an investigation intto reports that sea cucumber farmers have been using a highly toxic insecticide that is banned in the country.

Dichlorvos, an insecticide that kills sea creatures such as shrimp and crabs but not sea cucumbers, has been widely used by farmers in the northern province of Shandong. The agriculture ministry is aware of the report and has asked local authorities to investigate, it said on Friday.

sea 02Sea cucumbers are considered a luxury sea food in China, due to its high nutritional value and use in traditional Chinese medicine. The country produced about 30 billion yuan’s worth of sea cucumbers in 2017, mainly in the Shandong, Liaoning and Fujian provinces.

Television footage showed empty bottles of the insecticide abandoned beside aquaculture farms. One farmer said he used 20 boxes for his 50 mu pond. The pond water was discharged into the sea without any treatment.

用敌敌畏养海参

为了清理海参养殖湖里的其他生物,每亩池子约投放两公斤敌敌畏,由于敌敌畏毒性大,被投放的池塘鱼虾、蟹等生物全部死亡。

在山东即墨地区,不少海参养殖基地的池塘边都散落着农药敌敌畏的空瓶和箱子。在询问养殖户后发现,为了清理海参养殖湖里的其他生物,每亩池子约投放两公斤敌敌畏,由于敌敌畏毒性大,被投放的池塘鱼虾、蟹等生物全部死亡。

据兽药店经营者介绍,海参有很强的抗药性,敌敌畏毒不死海参,但其他生物能“清理”干净。

为切实加强海参养殖用药监管,不断加大对违法违规使用农药和禁用药、销售原料药以及无证经营等行为的打击力度,农业农村部于7月17日下发《关于加强海参养殖用药监管的紧急通知》,组织各地开展海参养殖违法违规用药专项整治行动。
