This chapter analyses the relationship between the government, military, and fishing industry in postwar Taiwan, as the level of state intervention and military control over fishing authorities in this period was unusually high. It discusses the roles of the Kuomintang Government, the China Fishing Company, Mainland Chinese parliamentarians, and the Legislative Yuan in relation to fisheries, and explores topics such as political brainwashing, military mobilisation, military surveillance, and governmental monitoring of the fishing industry. It concludes that the Taiwanese fishing industry struggled for three decades to gain national representation and to enter the political sphere independently.

Keywords:   Kuomintang Government, China Fishing Company, Legislative Yuan, Postwar Fishing Industry, Taiwanese Politics, Maritime China
