On May 26, wangjuying, director of the national marine environment monitoring center, introduced at the press conference that according to the bulletin of China's marine ecological environment in 2021
The state of China's marine ecological environment is steadily improving in. The overall seawater quality continues to improve. Typical marine ecosystems are in a healthy or sub-healthy state. Rivers entering the sea all over the country
The water quality is generally slightly polluted, and the environmental quality of the main sea areas is generally good.
"The problems of marine ecological environment are manifested in the sea and rooted on the land." Wangjuying said that the 2021 bulletin on the status of China's marine ecological environment more reflects the systematic and scientific nature of marine ecological environment protection. With the strong implementation of water pollution prevention and control actions, the overall water quality of the sea area under jurisdiction has been in a continuous and good state.
The communique systematically introduces typical marine ecosystems, marine nature reserves, coastal wetlands, etc. from the perspective of "macro ecology", and adds marine biodiversity, monitoring of marine rare and endangered organisms, etc. The communique specifically introduced the environmental conditions of marine dumping areas, marine oil and gas areas, bathing beaches, marine fishery waters and other areas. The monitoring data show that green is becoming the background color of high-quality development of marine economy.
In 2021, the Ministry of ecological environment organized the monitoring of marine garbage in 51 regions nationwide. The results showed that plastic was the main type of marine garbage in China. Plastic garbage accounted for 92.9%, 75.9% and 83.3% of floating garbage, beach garbage and seabed garbage respectively. Compared with similar international surveys in recent years, the average density of marine garbage and offshore microplastics in China's coastal waters is at a medium low level.
Wangjuying introduced that the Ministry of ecological environment and the national development and Reform Commission issued the opinions on further strengthening plastic pollution control and the action plan for plastic pollution control during the 14th five year plan to vigorously promote plastic pollution control and reduce the production of marine plastic waste from the source. Carry out marine micro plastic monitoring in key estuaries and bays. At the same time, marine garbage monitoring points will be covered in coastal prefecture level cities, and will be gradually expanded to coastal areas and counties.
In addition, the Ministry of ecology and environment incorporated the governance work into the overall deployment of the pollution prevention and control battle, constantly compacted the main responsibility of local governments for the treatment and supervision of plastic waste, and incorporated the implementation of the responsibility for the prevention and control of plastic waste pollution into the central ecological and environmental protection supervisor.
