U.S., Japan, Australia, and India to Launch Tracking System to Monitor Illegal Fishing by China

Environmental News from India: 

U.S. President Joe Biden is visiting Japan to attend the meeting of the Quad group of countries – Australia, India, Japan, and the United States in Tokyo- which have increased cooperation in the face of China’s growing assertiveness.

According to the Financial Times report, the maritive initiative will enable these countries to monitor illegal fishing even when the boats have turned off the transponders which are typically used to track vessels.

The U.S.-Indo Pacific coordinator Kurt Campbell had said earlier this month that the United States would soon announce plans to battle illegal fishing in the U.S.

Several countries in the Indo-Pacific region chafe at China’s vast fishing fleet. They say its vessels often violate their exclusive economic zones and cause environmental damage and economic losses.
