BEIJING, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- The State Oceanic Administration (SOA) told Xinhua Saturday that China's gross oceanic product was worth 3.8 trillion yuan (577.89 billion U.S. dollars).

The figure accounted for 9.7 percent of the nation's total gross domestic product in 2010 and 16 percent of the GDP in coastal areas.
