    The Brazilian fishing boat Oceano Pesca 1 have been attacked by the chinese one Chang Rong 4 near the Brazilian coast in a maritime dispute to fish tuna shoals.

    The Brazilians had been fishing when the chinese advanced against them. Through radio and by signals the chinese threating to sink the Brazilian boat. "They were threaten. The chinese hit on the Brazilian boat and did mention as if they would to cut out the crew's throat. Further, they throw several objects on the Brazilian crew." said the Brazilian owner of the damaged boat.

    After the attack, the Brazilian boat sailed toward opposite direction from the Chinese boat, but the chinese pursuited them for a while.

    The chinese aggresion caused a damaged on Brazilian boat's hull, forcing it to come back to do repairs in Brazil. "The Brazilians' luck is that the boat has a steel protection inside it to keep the fished tuna, or else the 10 personal could be died without send news", completed the owner.

    This was the third shock between Brazilians and chinese on the South Atlantic Ocean in the last three months, but the first time that a boat tried to sink another.

    What Bolsonaro will do when this type of case to happen under his gov? His foreign policy will be an automatic alignament to Trump's USA, so I hope Bolsonaro gov will have an anti-chinese posture such way the chinese will not face easy times in Brazil. These chinese pirates could have their boats detained or even sink from 2019 to on.

    South Atlantic isn't the South Chine Sea.

    The incident happened around 600 Km from Brazilian coast, at international waters.

    And the chinese fishing boat is two times bigger than the Brazilian one, with 44 meters lenght by 8 meters width against 22 x 6 meters dimensions of the Brazilian.
