  • Japan has been the biggest export market of aquatic products of China for many years. The export of aquatic products to Japan reached more than 700,000 ton and $ 3 billion in 2007. The influence to the export market caused by the sweeping economic crisis will affect the benefits of the export enterprises of China. The trade complementary index shows great potential of aquatic products trade between China and Japan. However, under the circumstances of economic crisis, to set up limits of import would be the prior choice of the trade policy by Japan. The paper analyses the trade economic efficiency (TEE ) of the export aquatic products to Japan in detail. TEE is an index to reflect the export situation of one country from the economic point of view by the trend of trade price change. If TEE>1, then the trade (either export or import) of the interested country is more efficient than the average level of the world market. If TEE<1, the situation is the opposition. We choose the species which export quantity exceeds 1000 ton to analyze and find out that the TEE of only 10 species is more than 1, which refers to more efficient. The number doesn_t reach 1/3 of the sample. The TEE of some species is even not as much as 0.6. Moreover, the paper points out that the limits set up to the aquatic products of China under the economic crises by Japan will be different from those of before. According to the dual characteristics of technical trade measure, the limits set up can be based on market failure as well as on economic benefit. The purpose of former is to protect the consumers. In the latter condition, the benefit of producers is considered. The limits set up this time would be based on the economic benefits in order to protect the benefit of domestic producers. Therefore, the export of aquatic products of China may encounter dual difficulties. Not only will the TEE of export be worse, but also will the export scale be declined. Accordingly, the government should take more effective measures to improve the export environment in order to help the enterprises to get through the trouble.
