It was reported by Prefectura Naval Argentina which will be in charge of monitoring. They were authorized due to the strong inclement weather expected in the next few hours. They will not be able to carry out fishing tasks and must keep the AIS on. The Undersecretary of Fisheries guaranteed that they will be controlled and that they will not fish. Concern in CAPA.

"Given the hydrometeorological conditions expected for the next few hours reported by the National Meteorological Service, some 259 Chinese vessels that have been operating in the so-called "mile 201" were authorized to enter the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), with the sole purpose to take refuge from the approaching storm, without being able to carry out fishing activities,” reported from the Prefectura Naval Argentina.

They pointed out that this force assumes the operation of safeguarding human life at sea and that it will be the body responsible for enforcing the law at sea. “This Maritime Authority informs that, based on the Argentine Federal Fisheries Regime and exercising the jurisdiction of the Coastal State, taking into account the legal framework of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (Convemar), vessels can enter due take the following measures:

“Do not carry out fishing tasks; have all those lights for fishing turned off; They must keep fishing gear on board, on deck and properly lashed; Their AIS positioning and communications equipment must be turned on continuously so that the Prefecture can supervise their safety in the storm and they must remain listening on the 4134 Khz frequency in contact with the coast station L3A and report their position to the 02:00, 10:00 and 18:00 hours.

"In this way, fishing vessels that are operating in international waters will be able to enter the refuge zone, complying with the aforementioned conditions," they indicated, and reported that the coast guard GC-25 "Azopardo" is sailing towards the area to carry out permanent control and monitoring through the Coast Guard System of the Prefecture and the Coast Stations, with intervention being given to the relevant national authorities.

In principle, the measure will be in force from Saturday, March 2 due to the alert for waves six to seven meters high in the fishing area in the southwest Atlantic Ocean, conditions that are expected to decrease from March 5.

They reported that the Argentine fishing fleet that is carrying out tasks in the area has been informed of the alert and is sailing to protected areas. From CAPA they did not hide their concern about the entry of such a large number of ships and are suspicious that there is strict compliance with what is established.

For his part, the Undersecretary of Fisheries, Juan López Cazorla, in communication with representatives of the sector, gave “guarantees” that the Chinese vessels will not carry out fishing activities and assured that they will be continuously monitored by the Argentine Naval Prefecture.
