The situation at China's ports has improved in recent months but is not completely fixed, Financial Times Economics Editor Chris Giles said during a panel session at the 60th annual IFFO international marine ingredients conference in Lima, Peru.

Because of stringent COVID-19 checks on goods entering China, getting fishmeal, seafood and many other products into and through the country's port system became highly challenging and sometimes nightmarish after the onset of the pandemic in early 2020.

Since shutdowns in April and May this year in the port of Shanghai things have improved again.
