    Chinese sand dredger intercepted in Taiwan’s waters (2020/07/31)

    Taiwan's Coast Guard on Friday intercepted a Chinese sand dredger operating illegally in the waters near Penghu. Two coast guard vessels and a helicopter were dispatched in the operation. The eight crew members of the dredger were detained and taken to Kaohsiung for questioning. Authorities say the intercepted vessel had already mined around 600 tons of sand, which will be poured back into the sea.

    Chinese sand dredgers infringing on Taiwan's territorial waters have become more common since Beijing banned sand mining along its coast. This year alone, Taiwan has intercepted nearly 3,000 Chinese vessels attempting to mine sand in Taiwan's waters. Officials say the practice disturbs marine wildlife. It's also unsafe for sailors, as sand dredgers are not designed to travel far into the open sea.
