NAV WARNING - PLA Live Firing Exercise - Quanzhou Bay China #MarSec

Chinese state media announced that the PLA Navy would be conducting live-fire drill in the Taiwan Strait on Wednesday, April 18

A marine safety notification from the Fujian district of China’s Maritime Safety Administration laid out the geographic limits of the exercise. The notice announced an exclusion zone for all vessels to keep out of for the duration of the exercise, between eight a.m. and midnight on Wednesday April 18th.

The coordinates provided place the exclusion zone just outside the mouth of Quanzhou Bay, with dimensions about 5 miles wide and 10 miles long, and importantly, is entirely within China’s territorial waters, which extend twelve nautical miles from its coastline.
