The reporter learned from the Ministry of Ecology and Environment that with the support of various special funds from the central government of more than 7 billion yuan, the Bohai Comprehensive Governance Campaign has achieved initial results. The overall quality of the ecological environment in the Bohai Sea is improving. In the first three quarters of 2019, the proportion of excellent water quality (types I and II) in the coastal waters has improved greatly compared with the same period of the previous year.
Huo Chuanlin, deputy director of the Marine Ecological Environment Department of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, said that since November 2018, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment and other departments jointly issued and implemented the "Bohai Sea Comprehensive Governance Challenge Action Plan", in the Bohai Comprehensive Governance Challenge, realized land and sea planning, governance and Collaborative advancement of repairs. In terms of land-based pollution control, as of September, only two of the 10 sections involved in the "deterioration" task of rivers entering the sea were worse than Class V, and the "deterioration action" achieved positive results. Achieve full coverage of the investigation of sewage outfalls into the sea. In terms of sea pollution control, three provinces and one city have established more than 800 aquaculture healthy aquaculture demonstration farms; Tianjin and Shandong have cleared and rehabilitated more than 20,000 acres and 190,000 acres of mariculture areas that are illegal and do not meet regional control requirements.
In terms of ecological protection and restoration, we insisted on “protection” and “repair” to work at the same time. In accordance with the requirements of “one bay, one policy, one mouth, one policy” in the three provinces and one city, all of the estuaries and bays have been completed. Important ecological systems such as Taonan Wetland and Huanghua Wetland in Hebei, Tianjin Dagang Wetland and Hangu Wetland, and Laizhou Bay Wetland in Shandong Province have been designated as nature reserves.
Huo Chuanlin said that the Bohai Sea is a semi-enclosed inland sea. Its marine ecological environment has the characteristics of large inertia, high lag, and strong suddenness. Although preliminary progress has been made in tackling the tough battles, there are still many problems to achieve the quality of the ecological environment of the Bohai Sea. Continual improvement and full achievement of the goals of the action plan still have large uncertainties. In the next step, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment will continue to promote the implementation of the action plan in conjunction with relevant departments and localities, and do a good job in the preparation of the "Fourteenth Five-Year Plan for National Marine Ecological Environmental Protection Planning." The idea is to take “useful, easy to use, and solve problems” as the starting point and standpoint to carry out top-level design and systematic planning of marine ecological environmental protection work in the new period, supplement the shortcomings of ecological environmental protection capabilities of the Bohai Sea, and provide environmental protection for the future of the Bohai Sea. Lay the foundation for work.
