Indonesian government calling on Beijing to respond to accusations Indonesian nationals were worked to death on board Chinese fishing vessels. A fleet of Chinese “ghost ships” were falsely reporting their location within New Zealand waters while they fished off the Galápagos islands. A Skytruth analyst Bjorn Bergman said: “No Chinese flagged fishing vessels are currently fishing within New Zealand's EEZ [exclusive economic zone, which gives jurisdiction over natural resources]. But Bergman said it is a pattern identified in over 100, mostly Chinese, fishing vessels. In 2017, the Ecuadorean navy captured Fu Yuan Yu Leng 999, a Chinese vessel fishing within the Galapagos marine reserve.
