Chinese fishing boats turn off radars and operate illegally in Argentina

Chinese fishing boats turn off radars and operate illegally in Argentina


Oceana's analysis shows that Chinese vessels have turned off their radars more than 6,200 times since 2018

More than 430 Chinese ships have been operating off radar in Argentina's waters since 2018, noted the latest report by the environmental organization Oceana, released last Wednesday (2). The main suspicion is illegal fishing.

The analysis of the Automatic Identification System, used to control maritime traffic, pointed out that more than half of the foreign vessels fishing near Argentina deactivated tracking and concealed their activities between January 2018 and April 2021.

At least 66% of the approximately 800 vessels detected are Chinese, the study says. The Asian fleet recorded nearly 900,000 hours of visible fishing activity within 20 nautical miles. Vessels “darkened” in more than 6,200 “gap events” – when the system is turned off for at least 24 hours.

“Why did they hang up if they're doing something cool?”, asked the assistant vice president of Oceana in the USA, Beth Lowell, in an interview with the newspaper “South China Morning Post”, Hong Kong. "They must keep [the system] turned on so the world can see what's going on."

The operation of Chinese ships in Argentina is “potentially illegal, unreported and unregulated,” says the organization. The Latin country contributes half of the largest global squid fishery.

gaps

In addition to China, the gaps left in Argentine waters come ships flying the flags of Spain, South Korea and Taiwan. Argentina's vessels, in turn, carried out less than 1% of the total fishing.

Chinese ships have converged in the waters of Latin countries like Argentina and Ecuador. In July, the Ecuadorian Navy discovered a huge fleet of about 260 fishing vessels, mostly Chinese-flagged, near the Galapagos Islands.

The site sits after an exclusive economic zone around the archipelago, whose gigantic biodiversity inspired Charles Darwin's theory of evolution.
