Yesterday, the Municipal Ocean and Fishery Bureau held a working conference on the demonstration base of rejuvenating marine industry with science and technology at Dalian Ocean University. It was reported that the base was approved as National Demonstration Base of Rejuvenating Marine Industry with Science and Technology by the State Oceanic Administration. On the same day, the conference on science and technology achievement promotion and project application training were also organized.
Dalian demonstration base of modern marine biological industry, one of national science and technology industry demonstration bases established at the end of 2012, achieved 255.5 billion yuan by the end of the "12th Five-Year Plan", 84% higher than that of the "11th Five-Year Plan". Besides, the base set up six scientific and technological innovation and service centers, cultivated 25 core enterprises, and realized more than 40 billion yuan, about 20% of Dalian's fishery output.
