Farmers  check lavers at a laver farm at Jinyang Village of Sansha Township on October 14, 2007 in Xiapu County of Fujian Province, China. Xiapu County has about 196 islands and its coastline ranges about 404 kilometers (about 251 miles). It is a production base of kelp, oyster and laver, with a laver output of over 36 million tons annually. China has begun building a school on a remote island in the South China Sea to serve the children of military personnel and others, expanding the rugged outpost it created two years ago to strengthen its claims to disputed waters and islands.
