Bahamas-registered vessel sails in Japan’s EEZ near Senkakus | GlobalPost

A Bahamas-registered maritime research vessel was sailing in Japan’s exclusive economic zone near the disputed Senkaku Islands on Sunday with a wire lowered into the water, the Japan Coast Guard said.

The 11th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters in Naha, Okinawa Prefecture, alerted occupants of the vessel, the Discoverer2, which was sailing in Japan’s EEZ at around 6:20 a.m., that its activities contravened international treaties that require prior approval for research.
