(p.99) Chapter 6 The Development of Kaohsiung's Fishing Companies
Taiwanese Distant-Water Fisheries in Southeast Asia, 1936-1977

Liverpool University Press

This chapter explores the development of Kaohsiung’s fishing companies in the postwar era. It examines the difference in demographics caused by the expulsion of Japanese authorities, the presence of the Republic of China, and in-migration from various parts of Taiwan. It then provides a series of case studies of Taiwanese fishing company histories, including a number of personal testimonies from fishermen and fishing industry employees. Combined, they suggest that overfishing the northern grounds during the 1950s caused a surge in migration, and that small, private companies became the main driving force of the overseas Taiwanese fishing industry as they were the best equipped to combat bureaucracy.
