China imports 'sinking' Brazil fishing sector

Brazilian industries say they are under threat from flood of low-cost Chinese products.

    China recently surpassed the United States as Brazil's largest trading partner, forming an economic partnership that leaders from both Beijing and Brasilia like to boast about.

    The relationship has seen Brazilian exports more than double and the economies of both countries boosted.

    But as low-cost Chinese products begin to flood the Brazilian market, some Brazilian fishing companies have complained that they cannot compete.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Vigia, Brazil.
