(p.77) Chapter 5 The Kaohsiung Fishing Industry and Its Ancillary Industries
Taiwanese Distant-Water Fisheries in Southeast Asia, 1936-1977

This chapter examines the relationship between the established Kaohsiung fishing industry and six core ancillary industries: ice manufacturing, trucking, shipbuilding, equipment supply, security, and stevedoring. It discusses the combative relationship between vessel owners and ice manufacturers; fee disputes between the Kaohsiung port and the shipyards; and labour problems - including theft and mismanagement - in stevedoring, trucking, and security companies. It demonstrates that vessel owners behaved amicably toward ice manufacturers, shipyard owners, and trucking company bosses, but generally displayed contempt for labourers and lower social class roles that included security guards and stevedores.
