Conference paper


Fishery is not so big an industry among today’s modern industries. But in many small communities, like local towns and villages in Japan, it is still a key industry for developing those areas.

This report introduces a typical project which has brought a certain development to a community by efforts of a fisheries cooperative, based on fishery, through integrated measures combining fishery and resort. The project suggests many things about the way of development in local areas, especially in coastal places where fishery is a major industry.

In the near future of Japan, fisheries cooperatves’ should play more important roles for developing local areas because coordinate activity connecting fishery with other industries will become very common in local areas.
