[City News] down from the altar! More than 1000 yuan per catty fell to 20 yuan! Some once made millions a year on it

The salamander, whose scientific name is "giant salamander", is not a fish, but one of the largest amphibians. The body length is generally about 1 meter, the longest can be up to 2 meters, the weight is 20-25 kg, the largest up to 50 kg. The color of the body varies with the color of the living environment, the back is brown, reddish-brown, black-brown, etc., with irregular spots of darker color on the top, and the belly is light brown or grayish white. Due to its high economic value, in the 1980s and 1990s, this species, known as "living fossils", was excessively stolen by people, coupled with river pollution, and the ecological environment was destroyed, resulting in a sharp decline in population, so it was listed as a national second-class protected animal. People have always been full of interest in salamander, so this special game has no surprise appeared on the human table, and the meat quality of salamander has not disappointed the food! Tender! Fat! Beautiful! So for a long time, salamander has become a food for many food lovers. However, since about 2013, the price of salamander farming has fallen all the way, once sold to more than 1,000 yuan per catty, and now the wholesale price has fallen to 25 yuan per catty. In Hanzhong, Shaanxi Province, the country's largest farmed salamander production area, the wholesale price even dropped to about 20 yuan a catty. Once the "sky-high" artificial salamander is now down to the altar many farmers in these years have reduced production, exit or transition ten years a "giant salamander dream", why is the salamander not fragrant? Bionic environment farming giant salamander farmers: Once raising salamander annual income of millions, now falling to tens of yuan per catty reporters learned that Guangdong, Sichuan, Chongqing and other southern cities have been the mainstream market for artificial salamander consumption. In 2007, the value of cultured salamander in the domestic market was as high as more than 3,000 yuan a catty, which truly explains what is called "rare things are expensive". However, starting around 2013, the price of farmed salamanders began to fall. At that time, the aquaculture technology of special aquatic products continued to break through, especially the artificial special aquaculture scale of salamander gradually expanded, and the market supply doubled, which opened the "crazy road" of price reduction all the way down. Like eggs sold in supermarkets, salamander is now a common dish, says Li Yuanfang, who runs two wholesale outlets in the Guangzhou and Foshan aquatic markets. "It's an incidental product." Online, Jingdong, Taobao and other platforms of artificial breeding salamander, the price per catty ranges from 28 to 40 yuan, single tail weight from 1 catty to more than 20 catty. The origin is Shaanxi, Guangdong, Jiangsu, Sichuan, Hubei, Guangxi, etc.; All are shipped from the country of origin, and some merchants also come with special recipes. In the case of a declining market, the weakness of salamander's high cost and long maturity period has gradually been magnified, becoming an important reason for farmers to gradually reduce their scale or "withdraw". Xie Ciyong is the first salamander breeder in Guanghan, Sichuan Province. It has led more than 100 farmers to raise salamander to increase income and get rich. Xie Ciyong introduced that in the 1990s, he worked in a joint venture, in 2004, he left to return to his hometown Guanghan farming, at the end of 2008, he went to Hanzhong, Shaanxi Province, a friend of the salamander farming. At that time, Xie Ciyong felt that it was very ecological to raise salamanders, and the market price of breeding salamanders was also very considerable. However, the salamander is a national secondary key protected wild animal, only the second generation of artificial breeding can be eaten and sold, and artificial breeding needs to obtain a license. The reporter learned that the salamander is a national secondary key protected wildlife, according to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs issued by the "People's Republic of China aquatic wildlife utilization licensing Measures", domestication, breeding and management must be in accordance with the "Wildlife Protection Law" "Aquatic wildlife protection Regulations" and other laws and regulations. Handle the Artificial breeding License and Operation Utilization License in the provincial fishery department. After obtaining the relevant permission, Xie Ciyong began to farm salamanders, first cooperating with others to raise thousands of salamanders, and later setting up a salamander farming cooperative, which at its largest could produce about 100,000 salamanders a year. "The best time for the market is from 2008 to 2012, when it easily reached millions a year." "In those years, breeding salamander sold for more than 1,000 yuan a catty, and even reached 2,000 yuan a catty, and breeding salamander fry for 1,080 yuan." However, after the boom, artificial salamander farming began to decline. Since 2013, the price of salamander farming has dropped, but there is still a profit margin. Xie Ciyong's salamander is not only sold in his own farm and base, but also mainly sold in Chengdu Shuangliu wholesale store. Until 2016, each catty of cultured salamander could sell for 120 yuan to 150 yuan, but in 2017 it fell to less than 100 yuan per catty, and now the retail price has fallen all the way to more than 30 yuan a catty. As prices fall, farmers' output shrinks. For salamander farming, Xie Ciyong has no original passion. "The market for salamander farming is too depressed. Now the price has fallen to the bottom, and there is basically no profit. I have been farming bullfrogs for five years." Why did it fall from "sky-high" to "civilian" prices? Wang Qiang, vice president of Sichuan Fisheries School and member of the Chinese Fisheries Society, analyzed that with the breakthrough of aquaculture technology, special fish farming has achieved normalization. A "rarity" like the salamander becomes less appealing. Wang Qiang believes that another reason is the market effect, once the salamander price was high, a big reason is that consumers at that time there is a curious psychology, "after eating feel the taste, taste is very general, they are not willing to consume salamander." In addition, the family's acceptance of salamander is not high, and the willingness to consume is also low. Wang Qiang analyzed that it was because the salamander had mucus on its body, which was troublesome to slaughter. In addition, the smell of fish is heavy, and cooking is more difficult. General family cooking out of the taste is not good, only a few restaurants have mastered the slaughter, cooking technology.
