The US warned about the presence of more than 300 Chinese ships outside the EEZ

The North American Embassy in the South American country warned of the economic and ecological damage that Chinese overfishing could cause in the Peruvian seas

The United States Embassy in Peru warned of the arrival of a fleet with more than 300 Chinese-flagged ships, outside the Peruvian Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) that could “cause enormous ecological and economic damage”, in a message published to through your account on the social network Twitter.


The group of Chinese fishing boats moved from the Galapagos Island to the surroundings of the coast of Peru to carry out fishing activities.

“A fleet of more than 300 Chinese flag ships with a history of changing ship names and disabling GPS tracking is off Peru. Overfishing can cause enormous ecological and economic damage ”, warned the US embassy in Peru.

The diplomatic office denounced that Chinese vessels would be dumping plastics that pollute the Pacific Ocean, a problem that would affect more than 41 countries.

"Who will hold them responsible?" The embassy asked through its account.

Currently, the fleet would be off the coast of the province of Pisco, in the department of Ica; and according to the declaration of the Ministry of Production of Peru, the Chinese vessels did not enter the national maritime territory.

“Produce's satellite tracking system has been revised and it is seen that there are no Chinese ships within 200 miles of the Peruvian sea. In the event that their entry occurred, we would intervene in coordination with the Navy, "they said from the ministry.

However, the president of the Fishing and Aquaculture Committee of the National Society of Industries (SNI) of Peru, Alfonso Miranda Eyzaguirre, said that many times these Chinese vessels "make inroads into our sea."

"It is an alert because there is a repetitive dubious behavior of this fleet," Miranda told the local newspaper Gestión. He also indicated that the fishing route also involves more countries in South America.

“It is the so-called Squid Route. At this moment, they are off the coast of the province of Pisco and will continue their journey south to reach Chile and, later, to the marine waters off Argentina ”, he added.

The Chinese Embassy in Peru responded to the US complaint, in another publication on its official Twitter account claiming that “as a large and responsible country in the fishery, China always attaches great importance to the protection of the environment and resources of the oceania , and exercises stricter supervision and controls on ships that are in overseas operation, while simultaneously requiring ocean weight companies to respect International Law and strictly obey the pertinent laws and regulations of Peru and limit operating in high sea".


China also added that it hoped that "the Peruvian public will not be misled by false information."
