The fishing industry not only acts as foreign exchange earner but also plays an important role in China’s economy. But with the development of technology and liberalization of international trade, the foreign countries adopted in succession trade barriers to limit China’s fishery product export, which had make China’s fishery product export disproportionated with fishery products production. By the literature analysis, we find practical research aiming at aquatic products export trade is in shortage greatly. So it is necessary to provide risk management for export trade of aquatic products. A decision support system for risk management in aquatic products export trade had been developed by China Agricultural University. Based on questionnaire and interviews, we analyze the decision problems, user needs and the difficulties involved in developing the aquatic products risk management system. The system architecture and its components, such as database, knowledge base and model base are described. At last we discussed on problems we had encountered during development and promotion.
