The Chinese navy begins a joint exercise in the East China Sea with the country's fishery administration and marine surveillance agency on Oct. 19, 2012.



A total of 11 vessels from the Donghai Fleet of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) Navy, the fishery administration and marine surveillance agency took part in the exercise along with eight aircraft.

When carrying out missions in disputed waters, patrol vessels of the fishery administration and marine surveillance agency have been stalked, harassed and even intentionally interfered with by foreign vessels, greatly challenging their duties, according to a statement from the fleet.

The exercise is aimed at improving coordination between the navy and administrative patrol vessels and sharpening their response to emergencies in missions to safeguard territorial sovereignty and maritime interests.

The PLA navy has conducted several joint exercises with the fishery administration and marine surveillance agency in the past.
