Abstract or Summary
  • In this paper, we discuss the solution for the shortage of labor supply in the fishing industry by comparing three countries/region in the East Asia; Japan, Taiwan and Korea. Fishery is a so-called 3D (Dirty, Dangerous and Difficult) industry as it requires hard work on the ocean often through the night. Some of the fishing sectors cannot afford higher payment enough to compensate 3D works, and it result in the shortage of young workers. In the case of Japan, aged coastal fishers who take 3D work for granted continue working by themselves or even accompany their wives as a helper while receiving pensions. Introduction of foreign workers are limited in terms of the number and province. On the contrary in Taiwan where foreign workers are utilized everywhere, offshore/coastal fishery sectors are not exceptions. Fishers manage to utilize foreign workers with diverse origins. So far, monetary incentives for young Taiwanese entrants to fishery sector do not function in spite of the amount of subsidy equivalent to the annual salary. In Korea, offshore purse-seine fishery obtains temporary young workers since this fishery is officially accepted as a substitute of compulsory military service. In other fishing in Korea, foreign workers are introduced. Thus, these countries/region fulfill the needs of 3D labor at the affordable wage level. We investigate the reason why such differences in the way of fulfillment arise by questioning the migration policies as well as the motivation of existing and potential fishers.
