    Well done, this chinese government plan! That was seen with many other cultivations, where chemicals use was out of control, to obtain a desaster, at last.
    Often, solution was just a requirement of a better training for farmers.

    Thanks Pattye,
    That was a really great article, and I learned a new word "eutrophication".
    I have long worried about the sustainability of Chinese fresh water pearl production.. and this article both encouraged me to relax and filled my mind with a thousand new questions. LOVE THAT.
    All best to you and thanks again for sharing this!

    That was definitely worth the read. I'm glad the government has put some standards in place. I can see the transition being very hard on farmers, but it's so, so necessary.
