    Chinese Coast Guard Concludes Enforcement Actions During Summer Fishing Ban

    Published on

    BEIJING, Sept. 19 — China‘s four-and-a-half-month sea fishing moratorium ended on Sept. 16. Meanwhile, a law enforcement action co-launched by the China Coast Guard (CCG), the Chinese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs and the Ministry of Public Security to combat sea fishing activities illegal during the fishing moratorium, concluded with significant results.

    During the action, CCG agencies at all levels dispatched vessels for a total of 19,798 times and aircraft for 77 sorties, to board and control 2,443 fishing vessels, and seized 964 illegal vessels. The action effectively promoted the sustainable development of marine fisheries resources.

    With the end of the fishing moratorium, the Chinese fishing industry is entering the peak fishing season. The number of fishing vessels at sea has increased dramatically, leading to an increased risk of fishing disputes, illegal fishing in the buffer zone of fish habitat, and illegal foreign fishing. In response, the CCG will continue to strengthen law enforcement and surveillance, to maintain order of marine production activities.
