Six state-level celebrity chefs and their apprentices will vie in public to win a fresh-ingredient cooking contest on the last two days of the May 17-19 Asia-Pacific Aquaculture Expo 2019 & Zhuhai International Aquaculture Trade Fair.

Visitors reportedly may savor the sumptuous freshly cooked dishes. Co-organized by the Famous Chef Special Committee of China Cuisine Association, the cooking competition is expected to continue last year's success in Fuzhou of Fujian Province.

Wild and farmed sea and freshwater fish, shellfish, shrimp, and crab along with sun-dried, tanned, and pickled products plus condiments will also be displayed and traded at the Zhuhai International Convention & Exhibition Center in Shizimen Central Business District.
