The marine law enforcement agencies of China and the Republic of Korea (ROK) have conducted their first joint patrol of 2022 in provisionally designated waters under a China-ROK fisheries agreement.

A fleet, comprised of one vessel each from the China Coast Guard (CCG) and the ROK's ministry of oceans and fisheries, patrolled a distance of 1,120 nautical miles over a period of 139 hours between April 21 and 27, according to the CCG.

During the patrol, which was based on the consensus reached at a China-ROK meeting on fisheries law enforcement in 2021, the two sides shared working information via radio and exchanged opinions on deepening cooperation.

In the next step, the two sides will step up maritime law enforcement cooperation to jointly safeguard fishing production in the designated water areas, the CCG said.
