Vessels entering fish farm areas in China are resulting in numerous claims.

Most incidents are reported to involve merchant vessels inadvertently entering fish farms off the coast of Lanshan in the Shandong Province. Some of the affected fisheries are relatively new and do not have any obvious markings. Local MSA offices have published warnings and notices for some fisheries on their websites, but it is understood that many are not marked on Chinese charts.
