This chapter discusses the roles, responsibilities, and socio-political hierarchies between Taiwanese fishermen at sea. It explores the individual roles onboard a fishing vessel, such as the fishing master, radio operator, and engineman, and their various levels of authority in relation to one another. It then explores the fluctuations of Taiwanese fishing zones during the 1960s, noting the factors of ethnicity, fish stock demands, and personal preferences that influenced geographic trends. It details the risks of crossing into foreign waters and the reasons fishermen opted to do so regardless, which include poaching purposes and taking more direct routes to their destinations. It concludes neighbouring nations increased the punitive measures against straying Taiwanese vessels in order to either repel or extort those aboard.

Keywords:   Taiwanese Fishermen, Taiwanese Fishing Vessels, Maritime Labour, Fishing Hierarchies, Taiwanese Fish Stock
