This paper analyzes the state and conditions of aquaculture in South China Sea both from technological and economic perspectives. We state from the basic marginal cost analysis and construct a two sector model for this issue. Base on the comparison on the cost between aquaculture sector and traditional agricultural sector, we conclude that China has a big potential in aquaculture and the government should impulse this industry by necessary policy instrument.
