Standing in front of the door, we see the story of Jingwei, Poseidon, the Little Mermaid, and many other legends of the ocean, as well as various states of marine life, the depth of its energy, the beauty of its scenery and the emotions. The ocean world is all-encompassing, and the creative inspiration is also inexhaustible. Under the call of the times, marine cultural creative industry has great potential. Being close to the ocean, loving the ocean, and protecting the ocean are the responsibilities that the times have given us. This is our song of the ocean and our praise to the ocean.
