The Living Species and Their Illustrations in China's Seas is the achievement of the Chinese Offshore Investigation and Assessment, and is also an expanded continuation of Marine Species and Their Distribution in China's Seas (first published in Chinese in 1994, with an English version in 2001, and a revised and expanded version in 2008), covering the largest number of marine species, and is the best illustrated and most comprehensive among similar works in China. This book is the product of the collective effort of 112 national and international experts from 44 participating organisations.

The whole treatise comprises two parts: This two-volume set, The Living Species in China’s Seas, which covers more than 28 000 species, and the 8-volume series An Illustrated Guide to Species in China's Seas, which contains black-and-white illustrations of 18 000 species arranged according to the five kingdom classification scheme, with correspondence to the species list published in The Living Species in China’s Seas. Together, these 10 volumes are intended for reference by personnel in the marine, aquaculture and maritime industries.
