China Coast Guard wraps up fisheries patrol in North Pacific
Two ships dispatched by the China Coast Guard (CCG) have completed a 2023 patrol mission to enforce fisheries law on the high seas of the North Pacific Ocean, and returned to Shanghai on Tuesday.
During their 45-day patrol, the CCG ships observed 77 fishing boats and boarded 12 boats to conduct inspections on the high seas, according to the CCG.
They undertook the inspections in accordance with relevant United Nations General Assembly resolutions and the Convention on the Conservation and Management of High Seas Fisheries Resources in the North Pacific Ocean, the CCG added.
