The BBC News website is reporting that the Argentine coastguard has sunk a Chinese fishing boat that it says was fishing illegally in Argentine waters on Monday (14-March-2016)

These kind of issues should be taken into consideration when we discuss the type of sea and air platforms are required for protecting our own EEZ.  Not all threats are military.

The Chinese vessel deserved to be sunk after trying to ram the Argentine CG vessel.

Didn't anyone tell them the Chinese government own everything, even the right to violate copyright laws.  They own all the water ways within 1000000 NM of China. Would not surprise me if we found one out fishing in the St Lawrence

It has been 34 years since the Argies got in a scrap, so maybe they're due.  >:D

I can see the AOP's doing fisheries patrols along with DFO and CCG

I can't. 17 friggin knots is nowhere fast enough. Drop the "A" and get us some "O" PV that can sustain 22-24 Kts and the Navy will gladly drive them RCMP's and Fisheries officers around.
