Guangzhou has huge live reef fish restaurants that have 3 or 400 chinese chefs and live crocodiles on the floor of the mall-like area... the crocs mouths were taped shut, and they would be meals soon, but people would be walking along, talking on their cell phones, not paying attention and trip over live, hissing, charging crocodiles... Restaurant is Yumin Restaurant 2287 8833..Main contact:.Nicole_artbud@hotmail.com or nicolecheng@vip.sina.com.Cell phone number: +(86) 139 2214 1600.Nicole Cheng.Senior Associate-Guangzhou.Burson Marsteller.Room 6805A, CITIC Plaza, 233 Tianhe North Road.Guangzhou, 510613 P.R.C..+8620 3877 1820 X229 Work Phone.3877 1815 Fax.Nicole_cheng@bm.com.Initially reef fish only came from the South China Sea, but transport developed and fish now come from all over S.E. Asia.  The whole reef fish trade crashed with the 97-98 HK stock market crash.  LRF trade is directly linked to economy.  With China coming online financially the trade is booming.  These fish are often used for celebratory meals in Hong Kong, but in Guangzhou the fish are so cheap and the apartments are so small that many people eat out...  And the stereotype is that there is lots of food left on the table.  Often a fish is popular because of its color... more than its taste.
