Ecuador jails 20 fishermen found with 6,000 sharks
    2017-August-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

AN Ecuadorean judge has jailed 20 Chinese fishermen for up to four years for illegally fishing off the Galapagos Islands, where they were caught with 6,600 sharks.

The Chinese-flagged ship was apprehended in mid-August with some 300 tons of near-extinct or endangered species, including hammerhead sharks.

The crew received jail time of between one and four years, the judge said late Sunday. They were also fined a total of US$5.9 million.

The islands are about 1,000 km west of Ecuador’s Pacific coast.

The boat will be taken over by Ecuador and the dead animals thrown out to sea, the government said.

Speaking in Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Tuesday China opposed any form of illegal fishing, and was paying close attention to the case.
