Fishermen from Oki Islands were eager to go to Takeshima for fishing. A "Takeshima Development Devoted Worker Group" led by Toshi WAKITA, President of the Kumi Fishery Co-operative Association of Goka Village, consisting of 10 or more members including Minetaro MAEDA, a famous fisherman for fishing to Takeshima in the past, got on Shimakaze, Fisheries inspection vessel of Shimane Prefecture, under the guidance of SHIGETA, Deputy Director-General of the Fisheries, Commerce and Industry Department of the Prefecture, and IGAWA, an engineer, then, secretly departed for Takeshima on May 2nd. They landed on Takeshima on 3rd and carried out fishing operations around the islands for about two hours, and caught about 2,000 kan (about 7,500kg) of seaweed as well as about 30 kan (about 112.5kg) of abalone and turban shells, then returned Fukuura in Goka Village early in the morning of 4th.
