This petition was made after the detection of a illegal Chinese boat in Argentina’s waters. The ship didn’t attend the stop call, tried to attack the authorities and then left to international waters.
According to Miranda, illegal fishing gets 20 million tons of fish every year, with a cost around US$ 23 billion. In other words, 1 out of each 5 fishes in the world is captured by pirates.
We can also add that the Minister of Production (PRODUCE), calculates that US$ 500 million are lost, every year, for Peru.
Considering the impact of this activity, a joint action “from the government of the region to eradicate those pirates in our coasts and declared them as illegal ships to be blocked globally” is required , explained the executive.
Delegates of the Peruvian fishingmen sindicates declared about this case. However, they assured there have been multiples Chinese ships near Grau Sea, doing illegal activities.
“I hope that the authorities end with the illegal fishing in our territory”, said David Epstein, spokesman of CALAMASUR.
