This chapter explores the daily lives of fishermen and fishing communities in Kaohsiung. It explores the migration networks of Taiwan and how ethnic boundaries impacted job prospects; the onshore economic activities in the region; the culture of long-distance fishing and how it impacted marriage, family, and relationships; wage rates; and welfare. It concludes that by the 1970s it had become difficult to attract young people to the fishing careers due to onshore job opportunities, poor fishing wages, and poor personal relationship prospects.

Keywords:   Fishing Migrants, Taiwanese Fishing Vessels, Taiwanese Fishermen, Taiwanese Shipowners, Migrant Networks
