March 1 this year, the island Protection Act implementation, emphasizing the protection of the island, while the implementation of the law also means that no residents the development of the island is legally thaw. Ranks second with the number of islands of Fujian, has always been a sensitive nerve of national ocean policy, implementation of the law to protect the island, is bound to cause a big stir in Fujian. Uninhabited islands on the rational exploitation and protection, the reporter interviewed the Fujian Provincial Fisheries Department Marine and Island Marine Management Division of the bell.
a long time, no law does not make clear that ownership of uninhabited islands, resulting in community ownership of the uninhabited islands a clear understanding of the nature. Fujian Province, the development and utilization of uninhabited islands with a number of other coastal provinces, as is also common, “disorderly, excessive, gratuitous” phenomenon.
introduced, according to Bell, part of the uninhabited islands by some local governments and individuals as terra nullius, unauthorized transfer, transfer and rent, resulting in a deep-fried island, deep-fried mountain stone, and other serious changes in the island landscape and form of the phenomenon, caused no serious damage to the residents of island resources.
especially in the inning popular, many islands in the road, reclamation razed. According to Fujian comprehensive marine survey, since 1990, Fujian uninhabited islands have disappeared more than 100.
bell told reporters that although the law has been implemented to protect the island, but the supporting regulations have not yet worked out, such as uninhabited islands development application and approval system, the cost of collection and use of the island management system, State of emergency are still under development. “So far, Fujian has not yet been approved development of a non-resident island.”
but preliminary work has already begun. Pingtan County in Fujian, recently, to support and promote the comprehensive experimental zone Pingtan, Provincial Oceanic and Fishery Department in the project with the sea, marine environmental protection and other aspects of the introduction of 5 18 specific policy measures, including promoting the development of non- Uninhabited Islands.
Fujian Provincial Oceanic and Fishery Department has said it will promote the comprehensive experimental zone Pingtan development and utilization of uninhabited islands, in compliance with laws and regulations to determine the strict premise of ecological protection measures, units and individuals in the consolidated the use of experimental area of ??uninhabited islands in the development and utilization activities, the provincial administrative department of marine island were made with the application, the project feasibility reports, development and utilization of specific programs such as application documents, the organizational review as soon as possible, according to the law reported the relevant authorities for approval.
despite policy support, but some of the development process should pay attention to the problem can not be avoided. Pingtan Marine Fisheries Service Marine Resources Section Chief Yu said: “Not all of the uninhabited islands are suitable for development, the island’s land area, geological structure, vegetation cover, etc. are the factors constraining development.”
bell that the reason for the formation of island development “hot”, it is because ownership of the island the first time clearly in the law, but in fact the “development” is not the most important meaning island Protection Act, “protection” is the real purpose of the Act.
Nevertheless, the objective is the development of Shanghai Island will continue to start. How to use local conditions to develop the island, how to develop while protecting both, these two issues in the development of the island can not be avoided.
Fujian Provincial Oceanic and Fishery Department policies and regulations and planning at the head of Pan Zhimin, said in an interview, according to Island Protection Act allows people to develop the rational use of the island, but the island’s environment, there are specific requirements. According to regulations, the future residents of the island has to give priority to the use of wind, solar and other renewable energy and rainwater harvesting, desalination, sewage recycling and other technologies to protect the island and its surrounding waters ecosystems, damage to the ecology of unauthorized buildings or facilities, they must be removed and tissue repair.
According to Bell, the current Marine Fisheries Department is in full swing in Fujian Province to develop a “development and utilization of uninhabited islands Regulatory Plan” in this plan, each of the islands of Fujian will have The clear position, including when to develop, for what industry, how to protect and so on.
“We want the future development of the island economy but also to protect ecological resources of the island.” Pan Zhimin says the next step Fujian Ocean and Fishery Department will study the development and protection of the island to encourage the introduction of preferential policies to increase the island development and protection of investment, to achieve the island of rational development and sustainable utilization.
