Some 40 Chinese trawlers operating near Senkakus

Sankei wrote that the Japan Coast Guard confirmed yesterday that approximately 40 Chinese fishing vessels were operating in the vicinity of the Senkaku Islands. The fishing season in the area started on Aug. 16. The number of trawlers spotted around the disputed outcrops on Wednesday was almost the same as in the previous two years. Chinese fishing outside the territorial waters around the deserted islets is legal under a bilateral fisheries agreement.
