    This is a lucrative trade.

    The ships are owned by locals and the products are sold in foreign markets where the prices for certain types of seafood are higher than the local ones.

    The same is happening to India where Indian 'owned' ships with foreign fishermen trawl the sea floor for the type of fish and Crustaceans which have a high market price abroad and along the Bay of Bengal.

    Like what has happened in Sri Lanka, none can take action since the trawlers are registered locally and owned by locals!

    well Sri Lankan owner can be front to mask real ownership and this will give them valid reason to fish legally, most surprising aspect is Chines logo, why the hell owner will put Chines or allow his workers to put Chines logo, given fishing by foreign ships is sensetive issue.

    The Chinese logo gives away the Chinese game plan and the dirty SL front men, who can be bought off with money without a thought of loyalty for the Motherland!

    Fortunately, the Indian boats are actually owned by Indians without any Chinese logo, but greed makes them act in unscrupulous way.
