Daiho Maru returns
Laden with fish

The Daiho Maru was used for fishing operations near the Senkaku Islands in the Yaeyama Islands, catching 30,000 kin (approx. 18,000 kg) of tuna and marlin in March 1953. This will therefore be the vessel's second trip, and in a few days, once the maintenance of the hull is complete, it will again fish in the southern oceans, alternating with the sister ship Ginrei Maru, which is currently in dock.
