Ecuador was on alert earlier this week as a flotilla of 260 mostly Chinese fishing vessels– what some called a “floating city”– was sighted near the Galapagos archipelago, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, whose acquatic species such as manta rays and sharks have been endangered by commercial fishing.

The Galapagos Islands, spread over almost 60,000 sq km, are a part of Ecuador, and are located in the Pacific Ocean around 1,000 km away from the South American continent. Every year, Ecuador faces the challenge of protecting its natural habitat from Chinese vessels.

They aren't going to stop going there to fish.

But they're thieving murdering commies so it's okay with the left around the world. Are you trying to imply that people other than white Christian males are capable of ever doing anything bad on Planet Earth? Perish the thought.

These are the same communist bastards who infected the world with COVID 19. Red China is the enemy of freedom. They suck. Every country needs to decouple from those assholes.

I wonder if any PLAN vessels are with the fishing boats. China hasn't shown itself to be a true blue water navy yet, but they are trying to get there.

A "fishing boat" is how many of the worlds governments used to hide a spy boat.

Could be that, or it could just be that china needs to fish in every nook and cranny of the worlds oceans to feed it's over populated nation.

Either way, it ain't good. Either china is spying on everyone on the planet, or they're abusing the oceans bounty and not caring that other nations depend on it too.

China is a POS nation. They have gained all their wealth and knowledge by slave labor and stealing intellectual property. That's why democrats love them so much. They're both corrupt commies.
