News from China: US Vows to Use “Improved” Patrol Boats to...

The news was announced yesterday by Robert O’Brien, US National Security Advisor. In a statement, Mr. O’Brien described the US as a “Pacific power” and said China’s illegal fishing activities were a threat to US sovereignty.

He said the new generation of reaction boats will be deployed in the western Pacific.

The security official said: “The People’s Republic of China’s illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, as well as the harassment of ships operating in the exclusive economic zones of other countries in the Indo-Pacific, threaten our sovereignty as well as the sovereignty of our Pacific neighbors and endanger regional stability.

“USCG is executing strategically improved Home Response Cutters built in a proven shipyard in Louisiana in the western Pacific.”

It is expected that the new boats will be tasked with carrying out “maritime safety missions”, which would include monitoring of fisheries.

Mr. O’Brien added that the boats would be used “in collaboration” with other US allies in the region whose offshore surveillance is more limited.

In addition, more boats could be stationed in American Samoa by the time they are viewed in 2021.

China’s fishing fleet is considered the largest in the world. According to Eco-Business, the country operates at least 2,900 long-distance water boats that fish outside of China’s own maritime borders.

Earlier this year, Ecuadorian naval forces discovered a Chinese fishing fleet that consisted of around 340 boats off the Galapagos Islands.

The islands that are part of the Republic of Ecuador are environmentally sensitive.

Ecuador’s Navy Commander Rear Admiral Darwin Jarrin alleged in August that many of the boats had turned off their communications systems.

If so, it would constitute a violation of the rules set by the Regional Fisheries Management Organization (RFO), reports Al Jazeera.

The Galapagos Islands are designated by UNESCO as “one of the richest marine ecosystems in the world”.

It describes illegal fishing and increasing tourism as one of the “main threats” to the islands.

A law to prevent overfishing in the region was introduced in 1986 and tightened 12 years later.

China’s embassy in Ecuador has announced that it will introduce new rules to combat illegal fishing by its vessels and a zero-tolerance policy.
