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.
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.”
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.

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.
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”.
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.
