Confused feelings about this, one the one hand it's good that they blow those fishing boats up but on the other hand it's only to protect their own monopoly on fishing..

I'm not sure if it's protecting a monopoly but this quote makes it sound like they target large fishing ops that damage the ecology but not small local fishers

Instead of putting the pressure on local legal fishers to recover fisheries, the Indonesian government put their attention on foreign illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing, which is a huge problem in Indonesia," says postdoctoral researcher Reniel Cabral at the University of California, Santa Barbara, lead author of the new study.

They also deport the crew who are probably just low wage workers :/ that part is what stands out as bad for me
