Fishing Company Punished for Vessel Caught With Dead Sharks
The Chinese government has suspended the distant-water fishing activity of a company involved a shark-smuggling case near Ecuador last year, Caixin has learned.
The Ministry of Agriculture has temporarily halted the operations of all 78 distant-water fishing vessels owned by Fujian-based Fuzhou Honglong Ocean Aquatic Products. The move comes six months after a refrigerator ship owned by the company was caught in the Galapagos Marine Reserve with thousands of shark carcasses onboard, according to a document seen by Caixin.
