According to a report on June 28th, U.S. President Joe Biden signed a memorandum related to the fight against illegal fishing on June 27th. As Chinese fishing boats repeatedly operate illegally, President Biden hopes to put pressure on Communist China to stop the illegal fishing phenomenon by strengthening cooperation with the international community.
The memo says 21 government agencies, including the U.S. Department of State, the Department of Defense, and the Coast Guard will work together to announce a five-year plan to combat illegal fishing by the end of next month. At the same time, there will be cooperation with five countries and regions, including Taiwan and Vietnam.
In addition, a framework for cooperation with the United Kingdom and Canada will be launched to combat illegal fishing. At the same time, transparency in the status of fishing vessels and seafood operations will be ensured through efforts to strengthen surveillance at sea.
In response, a senior Biden administration official said the memo did not identify any particular country. However, he criticized and said Communist China has long played a central role in illegal fishing and has often obstructed activities promoted by international organizations to combat illegal fishing and overfishing, among other things.
