Sunken oil tanker threatens fisheries and marine life in East China Sea

China's State Oceanic Administration, which has been monitoring the spill by ship, plane, and satellite, said satellite images showed four discrete oil slicks with a total area of 101 km2 near the wreck site on Jan. 17. On Jan. 18, however, the reported spill area had shrunk to 21 km2 in three slicks.
