What is a seedlings releasing project?

Seedlings releasing is artificially producing fish and shellfish, selecting only the young and healthy fish after infectious disease testing, and releasing them in a suitable environment, with the purpose of increasing marine resources. After the releasing of seedlings, continuous investigations and studies of the releasing effects are followed by various methods including monitoring genetic diversity. This includes studying how much seedlings releasing contributes to increasing marine resources, and whether a healthy environment is being maintained after the releasing
