Koreans land on "Takeshima" (Mainichi Shimbun)

Arrive in 10 ships
Start of the full-fledged Fishery
Discovered by Shimane fisheries research vessel
[Matsue] The Shimane Prefecture fisheries research vessel Shimane Maru (63 tons), currently investigating the Tsushima Warm Current, has discovered that South Koreans have already landed and are fishing in "Takeshima", the islands off Shimane Prefecture that are subject to a complex dispute between Japan and South Korea regarding the attribution of territorial sovereignty. The area around the islands has been touted as a treasure trove of the sea, but the vessel has also revealed, as a result of test trawls, that is in fact surprisingly unproductive. In view of the above, the prefecture's Fishery, Commerce and Industry Bureau has reported on the situation to the Fisheries Agency.
