Progress of Exercising Fishing Rights in Takeshima

While joint fishing rights have been granted for Takeshima, there have been few cases of the exercise of fishing rights. Therefore, as the prefectural government will cooperate fully, we would like the Kumi Fishery Cooperative to proceed with harvesting wakame seaweed, as an exercise of fishery rights. We will need 10 fishermen and 3 boats for this. For transportation to and from Takeshima, the prefectural fishery patrol boat Shimakaze will be used. The 8th Regional Coast Guard Headquarters will dispatch 5 patrol boats for protection, so I think there will be no danger.
