Lancelet

Last updated by chinatravel at 2014/5/2

The lancelet is the famous and precious specialty of Xiamen, whose popular name is crocodile worm, also called amphioxus. Its leading place of origin is Liuwudian in Tong'an, Xiamen. The Xiamen lancelet is small in size, 5-6 cm at most. It takes four to five thousand of them for one kilogram. Semi-transparent with both head and tail being sharp, it is the high-class fish, whose flesh is tender and fresh which makes one's mouth water. The dry ones can be kept for 1-2 years. It is an ideal souvenir for tourists.
