Chitosan application development since the sixties of this century is very active in recent years attached great importance to its further development and application. At present, the international marine biological materials applications of chitin and its derivatives prepared by high-tech products has introduced applications has reached more than 500, the United States, Japan, Italy, Norway, India and South Korea have established a chitin / Chitosan production plant, including Japan and the United States is the main producing countries, but it is also the main consumer countries.
