A report has detailed a Chinese fleet’s illegal operations in West Africa. According to NGO, the Environmental Justice Foundation some 90% of Ghana’s industrial trawl fleet is actually owned by Chinese corporations using local “front” companies to register as Ghanaian and get around the law. Meanwhile, locals working on the Chinese trawlers often experience human rights abuses, with ten Ghanaians interviewed saying that they had all “experienced or witnessed physical abuse by Chinese captains.”
