Local fishermen are checking the shrimps on Sep 1, 2011, in Yangjiao village, Laoting county, north China's Hebei Province. Economic losses of the fishermen are believed to be between 150 and 170 million yuan (about 23.5 to 26.6 million U.S. dollars) due to the oil pollution, as more than half of the scallops the fishermen raised have died, according to Yang Jizhen, president of the Laoting County Fishery Association.
