Workers planted baby clams into the sea.
Workers on Minyuz0039 boat loaded baby clams that were transported by truck from Bei Hai city in Guang Xi Province, after it was driven for 20 hours, to their boat. They later planted them in the sea of Jiangyin-Jiangjing Inner Sea in Fujian Province. 800 bags of baby clams were brought by the truck which weights 30 KG (66.19 lbs) and each contains about 9,000 baby clams. There were no sign of foul play, like applying anti-biotic or any chemicals. These clam farmers believe the water is clean claiming that the government officials check the water quality every week and confirm the water is clean although international study finds all of the water in the Fujian province's coastal shoreline waters are mostly rated very polluted, w/ heavy metals, cadmium, etc.
