BEIJING, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- A total of 676 vessels were seized for violations against the marine ecological environment during an eight-month-long special law-enforcement campaign that started in April, according to the China Coast Guard (CCG).

In the "Blue Sea 2020" campaign, which concluded recently, coast guards at various levels cooperated with maritime law-enforcement departments in investigating and handling 59 cases involving marine dumping, damaging marine nature reserves and other violations, the CCG said.

The authorities also investigated and handled 235 administrative cases related to sea sand and 386 criminal cases involving illegal mining. Over 4.4 million tonnes of sea sand linked to the cases has been seized, it added.

Launched in April by the CCG, the Ministry of Natural Resources and other departments, the campaign targeted violations of laws and regulations in eight fields, including marine and coastal project construction, offshore oil exploration and exploitation, marine dumping and sea-sand mining and transportation.
