A couple of years to resume fishery, and also worries about the accidents at the nuclear power plant

Mr. Takayuki Ishimori (54) at Nonohama Fishing Port in Onagawa-cho, Miyagi Prefecture

I am a chairman of Nonohama Branch of Miyagi Prefectural Fishermen’s Association. The ship departed to the sea, but not for the fishing. There are divers to check the condition of the seabed. This area is for the oyster farming. If the seabed was damaged by debris, we cannot carry out the business. I think it would take a couple of years to resume the fishery.

We hold the meeting of the Association every Sunday, and we want the government to provide the equal opportunity for fishery to each fisherman.

I also work as an electrician at the Onagawa Nuclear Power Plant nearby. My job is to maintain the generator and other things. When you work inside the plant, you will understand that it is safe. But the accidents at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant have made us uneasy. (photo by Mr. Hiroto Shibata)
