An abundance of fresh and quality seafood is what Lyusigang town – located in the county-level city of Qidong in Nantong of East China's Jiangsu province – is renowned for.

The town got its name from the legendary Lyu Dongbin, born in 796. One of the eight famous immortals revered by the Taoists and the founder of the Taoist mainstream Quanzhen Sect, he is known to have visited the area four times.
