About City

Seoul officially the Seoul Special Metropolitan City, is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea. Seoul forms the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, and includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, altogether home to roughly half of the country's population.

Seoul is in the northwest of South Korea. Seoul proper comprises 605.25 km2 (233.69 sq mi),with a radius of approximately 15 km (9 mi), roughly bisected into northern and southern halves by the Han River. The Han River and its surrounding area played an important role in Korean history.

Under the Köppen climate classification, Seoul has a humid continental climate, also bordering a humid subtropical climate. The suburbs of Seoul are generally cooler than the center of Seoul because of the urban heat island effect. Summers are generally hot and humid, with the East Asian monsoon taking place from June until September. August, the warmest month, has average high and low temperatures of 34.6 and 25.4 °C (94 and 78 °F) with higher temperatures possible. Winters are usually cold to freezing with average January high and low temperatures of 1.5 and −5.9 °C (34.7 and 21.4 °F) and are generally much drier than summers, with an average of 28 days of snow annually.

Seoul is the business and financial hub of South Korea. Although it accounts for only 0.6 percent of the nation's land area, 48.3 percent of South Korea's bank deposits were held in Seoul in 2003,and the city generated 23 percent of the country's GDP overall in 2012.In 2008 the Worldwide Centers of Commerce Index ranked Seoul No.9

Seoul is home to 115 museums, including four national and nine official municipal museums. Amongst the city's national museum, The National Museum of Korea is the most representative of museums in not only Seoul but all of South Korea.

55% of aquaculture production in South Korea is encompassed by seaweed. However, fish production is increasing rapidly. Seaweed culture is mainly concentrated on the South western coast where almost 90% of cultivation of seaweed in South Korea takes place. There has been a great increase in production of high value fish species, such as olive flounder and black rockfish during the last few years and a new interest in culturing penaeid shrimps. The vision of South Korea is a restructured aquaculture industry with an optimal production system and enhanced competitiveness. While doing this, Korea will be reducing by 10% production facilities devoted to high volume products such as laver and sea-mustard with no new licenses to be issued during the next five years.
