The Trademark Office of the China National Intellectual Property Administration approved the registration of the national geographical indication (GI) trademark for "Dongtou laver" , which is carried in the 1762nd issue of Trademark Gazette published by the administration a few days ago. This is another national GI trademark obtained by Dongtou District besides that for hijiki.

Laver breeding, with a history of more than 40 years, is an advantageous and characteristic industry of fishery and agriculture in Dongtou District. Its breeding scale, output and its value are rated in the forefront of the province. In recent years, the district has made innovation constantly in the seedling renewal, breeding sea area expansion, processing technology and other aspects of "Dongtou laver " , and thus it  has won the titles of the "Hometown of Laver in Zhejiang Province" and the "Hometown of Laver in China". At present, Dongtou’s laver breeding area has reached 30,800 mu, with an annual output of 5,000 tons, valued at about 317 million yuan. At present, there are about 4000 to 5000 labours engaged in the breeding. Laver breeding has now become an effective way for local fishermen to get rich.

Applying for GI trademark is a common practice to protect characteristic products in the world. The practice is of great significance to protect high-quality and characteristic products, and promote the development of characteristic industries. The registration and use of the GI trademark of "Dongtou laver" has provided an important brand support for the island’s characteristic industry of laver, hijiki and ecological large yellow croaker (two alga products and one fish) , featuring intensive processing, and will further enhance the market competitiveness of these sea products .

Next, relying on the advantages of GI trademark in the island area, Dongtou District will further standardize the applicable products and scope of GI trademarks of "Dongtou hijiki" and "Dongtou laver" to ensure the district’s sea product quality, and to assist in building a "model island" for common prosperity.
