Argentina sinks Chinese trawler during pursuit for illegal fishing
Crew rescued, with Buenos Aires saying Lu Yan Yuan Yu 010 was trespassing in its waters, tried to ram coast guard boat and ignored warning shots



Argentina’s coast guard sank a Chinese trawler that was fishing illegally in its territorial waters after it tried to ram a coast guard boat, authorities said on Tuesday.

In the high-seas chase a coast guard vessel on Monday pursued the Lu Yan Yuan Yu 010 toward international waters, firing warning shots across the Chinese boat’s bow as it attempted to raise the crew by radio.

“On several occasions the offending ship performed manoeuvres designed to force a collision with the coast guard, putting at risk not only its own crew but coast guard personnel, who were then ordered to shoot parts of the vessel,” the coast guard said in a statement.

The crew abandoned ship when the vessel began to go down. Four were rescued by the coast guard while others were picked up by another Chinese vessel shadowing the pursuit.

The drama marks a first test for relations between centre-right President Mauricio Macri and Beijing.

A spokesman for Argentina’s foreign ministry said the judiciary was investigating the incident. Comment was sought from the Chinese embassy in Buenos Aires.

The coast guard used radar to pick up the trawler fishing off the coast of Puerto Madryn, Chubut province, a zone known for squid.

Shots were fired into the hull of the Lu Yan Yuan Yu 010 after it ignored radio calls to allow the Argentine coast guard to board as well as repeated warning fire, the Argentinian authorities said.

China has the world’s largest distant water fishing fleet, with more than 2,000 vessels according to the not-for-profit group Stop Illegal Fishing.

The Argentinians seem to have a prolonged animus towards all Asian/Mongoloid features people. I mean, can you blame them? Getting utterly crushed by a handful of Gurkhas during the Falklands war with the British seems to have long-term consequences for trauma.

LOL.

This has been going on for quite some time, we can say that the Chinese don't give up sending their "rust buckets" (because thats what they are, old ships with no absolute value) to fish whatever they can and get out of argentine waters as fast as they can. A good number of them have been sunk in the past, but they just dont care.

No, we dont, we just do what we can to defend our natural resources
And so you know, the Gurkhas only action during the war, was getting shelled by artillery for days. They didnt participated from any battles of the war.

Cheers !

This was a past "Deal" Between the Kirchner organization and china back in 2015, its something that most argentines didn't want, but the former government didnt care, to be fair, they only wanted the profit of such deal.

The Ship currently on service is getting its Automatic cannon and new optics for its 12.7mm Machine Guns

Lastly The ship operated both Eurocopter Fennec and Sea king on board (the sea king looks quite big in the ship)
