First postwar fishing in Takeshima (Oki Koronsha)

Kumi Fishery Cooperative / President Wakita and others
Japanese territory? Or South Korean? Takeshima is full of topical issues, but some Okinoshima fishermen were eager to go and fish there. So a "Takeshima Development Volunteer Corps" boarded the Prefecture fishery patrol vessel Shimakaze and headed out to fish around Takeshima in secret on May 2nd. The party was led by Satoshi Wakita, President of the Kumi Fishery Cooperative of Goka Village, and consisted of 10 members including former Takeshima fisherman Maeda Minetaro, under the guidance of the Prefecture's Fishery, Commerce and Industry Bureau Deputy Director Shigeta and Engineer Igawa. The party disembarked on Takeshima on the 3rd, fished around the islands for about two hours, and harvested about 2,000 kan (about 7,500kg) of wakame seaweed as well as about 30 kan (about 112.5kg) of abalone and turban shells before returning to Fukuura in Goka Village early on the morning of the 4th.
