This chapter analyses the postwar recovery of the Taiwanese fishing industry, and the outstanding success that quickly followed. It describes the damage caused by the war, such as seized and lost vessels, and the emergency measures taken by the postwar government to protect the industry, both internal and international and extending as far as US intervention. It details the role of fishery authorities postwar, and further development of modern technology. It concludes that the postwar development strategy consisted of an increase in production through modernised vessels, and the construction of such vessels through foreign financial assistance.
