Mr. Xinrong Zhou, Pingtan's Chairman and CEO, stated, "We are pleased to announce the delivery of these new vessels.  We believe that the expansion of our fleet will continue to create economies of scale for Pingtan.  Increasing our volume will help in our negotiations with distributors and exporters, and also create the possibility of selling downstream directly to end markets.  We expect to remain aggressive in increasing our fleet, and look forward to enhancing our leading position in China's seafood industry."

Pingtan Fishing primarily engages in ocean fishing with many of its self-owned vessels operating within the Indian Exclusive Economic Zone and the Arafura Sea of Indonesia. Pingtan Fishing is a growing fishing company and provider of high quality seafood in the PRC.
