I'm confused about the part in bold above, which lists industries: 林业 = forestry, 农业 = agriculture, 草原 = grassland, 海洋 = ocean, 资源 = natural resource, and 环境 = environment.

I don't understand what 草原……行业 ("grassland industry") and 海洋……行业 ("ocean industry") refer to, and why use these terms instead of 农业 and 渔业 ("fishing industry"), respectively, which (to me) seem more ordinary.

Question: In 林业、农业、草原、海洋、资源、环境等行业, what industries does 草原 and 海洋 refer to, and why not use 农业 and 渔业 instead?

    All your points are right. It is just not well written. – River Sep 19 at 3:02

    Perhaps the author feels that "草原……行业 ("grassland industry") and 海洋……行业 ("ocean industry"), would give a more generic, broader meaning. 农业 and 渔业, (agriculture & fishing), would be too confining in their applications. Agriculture would just be the planting of crops whereas 草原……行业 would include animal husbandry, and 海洋……行业 would include oyster farming, pearl diving, crabbing, besides just plain commercial fishing. It's like "transport industry" would encompass taxi drivers, bus drivers, pilots, train engineers, etc. Also 行业, (industry, trade), is wider and general in its meaning than just 业. – Wayne Cheah Sep 19 at 6:50
  • @Wayne Cheah: perfect answer. We see the flexibility of Chinese language here. Simple change of one character can easily widen or narrow down your coverage. – James Liu 刘老师 Sep 19 at 13:18

草原 should mean animal agriculture(畜牧業) and any other nature resources related to grassland.

海洋 have similar concept of 草原.

You could use 農林漁牧業 to indicate agriculture,forestry,fishing and animal agriculture industries.
