Abstract
To explore the spatial-temporal characteristics and pattern evolution of geographic agglomeration of Chinese fishery for the period from 1988 to 2013, a set of indexes which can directly report the spatial-temporal characteristics and pattern evolution of that are used, including the Gini coefficient, gravity model and exploratory spatial data analysis. Results indicate that fishery production shows a heavily uneven distribution and tends to cluster at the province level. Additionally, the barycenter of fishery is always located in southeastern China during the study periods and tends to follow the flow of the Yangtze River over time. Simultaneously, spatial patterns of fishery geographic agglomeration substantially present hot spots in coastal regions and cold spots in inland regions. But the total amount of both hot and sub hot spots has decreased by nearly half while that of both cold and sub cold spots, on the contrary, has increased relatively in the time periods. More importantly, the majority of type areas, including hot spots, sub hot spots, sub cold spots and cold spots haven't yet changed, and the changed ones also mainly showed the gradually weakened evolution characteristics. Moreover, we further found that both distribution trends of contiguity and change rules of gradient for various type areas were not obvious gradually for the period from 1988 to 2013. We attempt to take a fresh look at the fishery geographic agglomeration by the combination of multi methods and angles, and our empirical evidence has important implications for both theories and policy making. Certainly, this also is innovative points of this paper.
