Press release: July 8, 2024
Nishina Fishing Port will appear in “Sea Fishing GO” this summer! On July 31st of last year, Nishiizu Town, Shizuoka Prefecture (mayor: Toshin Hoshino) produced the Izu Fisheries Cooperative Association. Japan’s first fishing port reservation service, “Umi-Tsuri GO”, which was started by Tago Branch (location: Tago, Nishiizu-machi, Branch Management Committee Chairman: Fumio Numano), was launched as a marine industry promotion service after a trial period of
approximately one year. This proved to be an effective measure. Based on these achievements, Izu Fisheries Cooperative Association Nishina Branch (Location: Nishina, Nishiizu Town, Branch Management Committee Chairman: Masashi Yamada) and Umigo Co., Ltd. (Location: Ukusu, Nishiizu Town, President: Daiki Kunimura) have signed an agreement to go sea fishing at Nishina Fishing Port this summer. will be newly introduced.
Successful trial at Tago Fishing Port
In July 2022, fishing was prohibited at Tago Fishing Port due to trouble between anglers and fishermen. Although the cause of the trouble could be removed by removing anglers, the liveliness of the area was also lost. If we simply reopen the fishing area, it will return to its original lawless state. One way to solve this dilemma was to introduce fishing spot management using an app.
This is Japan’s first system in which fishermen, as members of fishing port users, are responsible for the maintenance and management costs commensurate with their usage (Note 1). The service, which started on July 31, 2023, has been supported by local people, fishermen, and many customers, and has been provided for about a year, proving to be an effective measure to promote the maritime industry. I did.
Japan’s first fishing port reservation app “Sea Fishing GO” won the GOOD DESIGN AWARD 2023 and was featured in the FY2020 Fisheries White Paper
The cycle of anglers supporting the local community begins to turn. The strength of Sea Fishing GO is its well-balanced system, in which on-site patrollers take on tasks that can only be done by humans, such as on-site guidance and beautification activities, while software handles payments and reception. By minimizing the operational burden, you can save up your profits and use them for future investments. The Tago Fisheries Cooperative uses some of the proceeds to improve and add to fishing port facilities. The main measures taken over the past year are as follows.
– Installation of life ladder
– Update of AED equipment
– Setting up a rest area
– Water supply installation
– Continue patrolling and beautification activities
Using Sea Fishing GO as an opportunity, each angler participates in the maintenance and management of the fishing port. Our service philosophy is steadily being realized step by step.
