Ecuador | After spending months in waters near Galápagos NP, large Chinese fishing fleet leaves

GUAYAQUIL, Ecuador (Reuters) - Ecuador's navy said on Tuesday that Chinese fishing vessels have gradually left the area near the Galapagos Islands and are now operating in international waters off Peru, following months of fishing that spurred criticism from environmental groups.

More than 300 vessels arrived in June to the area around the Galapagos, one of most biodiverse in the world, to fish for giant squid in international waters.
