“fish a lot” to bring fishermen to the Diaoyu Islands waters
Fujian Xiapu Sanshazhen is an island town, which is the southeast coast of China a typical fishing town, where most people are fishing for a living for generations. Currently, the town a total of more than 500 fishing vessels.
in native Laoyumin Cai Aili 10-year-old started sea fishing. He’s now 66 years old, children and grandchildren, he is now enjoying this at home, but he also occasionally to the sea, the young juniors to play the “technical guidance” or “consultants.”
Caiai Li told reporters here just over 120 sea miles from the Diaoyu Islands, the locals know where the fish are more. But in his memory, only to the late 1970s, only relatively large number of fishing boats to go fishing there. “In the 1950s a small fishing boat still in the main, rarely, can not withstand too much wind and waves.”
Cai Aili said, when the 1970s to the Diaoyu Islands waters also mainly mainly state-owned fishing vessels or collective, such as Fujian fishing companies, because their ship tonnage, relatively good equipment, you can deal with cross-waters.
from the late 1980s, private fishing boats to the area more and more. He also remember that there are fishing boats in Guangdong ran the Diaoyu Islands waters, they came back to say “fish a lot.” This further led to Xiapu local fishermen to the area of ??the initiative.
was the first to open the Japanese boat had driven away from the
over sixties Cai Aili hale and hearty, he still clearly remember the first time he is The only time to Diaoyu Islands waters fishing scene, and that one of his fishing boat recently from the Diaoyu Islands is only 5 miles, but soon the Japanese ship was driven … …
1992, the Cai Aili out savings and loans , spent more than 90 million construction of a 150-ton fishing boat, which made him have a sea area of ??operation conditions. Lunar year in November, he led 15 people sail boats first came to this Diaoyu Islands waters. “Open with 8 knots, a full open more than 15 hours.”
Cai major fishing waters in the north-west of the Diaoyu Islands, which was mainly dominated by fishing horse-faced puffer, the average daily energy catch of about 1 ton. He also found that while fishing in the vicinity there are hundreds of Chinese fishing boats, “This production is better.”
In fact, when he knew, the Japanese naval forces began to intervene in this area, and to prevent Chinese fishing boats into the area 12 nautical miles from the Diaoyu Islands. However, one day into his fishing boat 12 nautical miles from the Diaoyu Islands has recently only 5 nautical miles.
Soon after, he saw a white ship flying the Japanese flag coming from the direction of Diaoyu Islands on board marked “Sea Fisheries Agency,” the words. “I saw two Japanese people standing on the deck of the ship, with a small speaker speak Chinese, should we leave; the other hand holding a gun. There is a water cannon on board.” Cai Aili description said.
“is China’s Diaoyu Islands!” Cai immediately come up with the flag, and high above his head. Japanese looked after, arrogance began to converge, words can ease up.
but after seeing the continuing operation of fishing boats, day boats ton of bricks, began approaching boats, “Recently, when only 50 meters!” According to him visually, at the ship 60 meters long, at least 300 tons.
have sea experience knows that, with close to two ships, in the water under the action of waves, it is prone to severe collisions, causing serious damage to the ship and even tipping the boat is no doubt the impact is more large. In order not to take the risk, Cai Aili reluctantly had to stay away from the boat to open waters of the Diaoyu Islands.
“from the early 1990s, the Japanese ships began to deliberately cause trouble.” Cai Aili said that due to fear of loss, since his ship never been to the Diaoyu Islands waters. In 2006, his fishing boat was completely destroyed in a typhoon.
fishermen to adhere to the Diaoyu Islands waters production
-handed intervention of Japanese, Chinese fishermen in the waters of the Diaoyu Islands have been seriously affected production.
early September this year after the collision, had been claimed, “no longer dare to enter the Chinese fishing waters of the Diaoyu Islands,” but it is not.
reporter recently learned that the boat number is “Min Xia fishing 01581″ fishing in October of this year have been to the Diaoyu Islands waters. Three shazhen, the reporter saw the ship and owners Huang Jiezhong, he is one of the ship’s three shareholders. At this point, he is on ship maintenance and repair.
Huangjie Zhong told reporters that he saw the collision from the Internet, but the details do not understand. But he also believes that the collision of his job and had little effect. In October, his ship still had the fish caught north of the Diaoyu Islands.
with 310 in the Diaoyu Islands cruise ship during the correspondents in the area rarely seen Chinese fishing boats, only vaguely seen some Taiwanese fishing boats. In this regard, Huang Jiezhong explanation is that “now the northeast monsoon season, large, sea waves are big and anxious, not suitable for fishing.”
According to him, “Min Xia fishing 01581″ in 2006, was built The captain of 38 meters, the throughput is 100 tons. Mainly in the waters of the Diaoyu Islands, the annual fishing time to concentrate on 5-9 March. This is a light boat, we rest during the day and night operations to catch squid, “bomb fish” (a local call) based.
Huangjie Zhong said that China’s Diaoyu Islands, fishing mainly in the northeast and northwest of the job. Fishing season in the night, frequently flashing lights everywhere. According to his observation, his boat near the sea there are hundreds of Chinese fishing boats operating at the same time.
but his ship is generally more than 10 sea miles away from the Diaoyu Islands to 20 sea miles between the waters of production, not too close, for fear of interference by Japanese patrol boat. In fact, “close (Diaoyu) a little, then fish a little more.” He shook his head helplessly.
310 ships into three shazhen “star”
Chinese fishing 310 cruise ship policy HuYu return from the Diaoyu Islands, in the three shazhen stop supplies, for a time became a local “star.” During the reporter visited the fishermen, they have to reporters asking the ship’s situation and the behavior of the Diaoyu Islands fishery cruise ship is much to applaud.
the same time, many local units after hearing the board have asked to visit. According to Reporters statistics, day time, there have been Fujian fishery Corps, Ningde Marine Fisheries Service, Xiapu county government, three shazhen appointed town government, border police station, six units of local fishing associations and other ships rushed to the condolence visit 310 and enthusiasm to send fresh meat dishes and fruit.

“Diaoyu Islands is our!”
diesel prices, workers rising wages, income of the fishermen began to be affected; the same time, when they Diaoyu Islands waters, they often worry about the risk of seizure by the Japanese side.

As diesel prices, Huang Jiezhong of increasing cost pressures. He gave reporters calculations, last year earned about 200 million, but takes on more than 100 tons of diesel, plus the payment of wages, due to shipbuilding loans $ 3 million each year to pay 400,000 yuan of interest, “one-year total will cost 1.6 million -170 million, the rest is not much. “encounter poor harvest year, is likely to gain little or lose money.
want more to protect our fishery boat
Huang Jiezhong frankly, caught at sea fish, in addition to bear the risk of suffering a typhoon, but also alert can not be too close to the Diaoyu Islands, Japan, fear of being detained.
a ship to be several million, which is almost everyone’s all of his possessions, but also give huge debts from the banks. Obviously, once their ship crashed or seized, for them, the loss is an astronomical figure, is also likely to mean that life is difficult to stand up.
fishery fleet cruise to see the Diaoyu Islands in the news, the local fishermen is very exciting. “Diaoyu Islands is our! We go fishing, no one should stop!” Cai Aili firm voice. 310, after the town dock the ship, local fishermen are very concerned about.
