Traditional Hokkaishima shrimp fishing utilizing a hokake-bune, which has a particular white triangular sail, started in Notsuke Bay in Betsukai-cho, Hokkaido.
In Notsuke Bay, the place the water is shallow at a depth of about 4 meters, a conventional technique referred to as utseami fishing is used to tug the web utilizing the power of the wind from the sail in order to not injury the eelgrass, which is the habitat of the shrimp. can be cut up.
Fishermen skillfully maneuvered their boats by opening the sails based on the energy of the wind.
And after I pulled the bag-shaped internet over the boat, I noticed shrimp with brown stripes leaping round.
Shrimp lower than 9 centimeters in size had been returned to the ocean for useful resource conservation.
Mr. Yukio Toyoda, a fisherman, stated, “The size of the shrimp is large and there is a reasonable amount for the first day. Notsuke’s shrimp are sweet, so I want you to come here and eat them raw.”
Hokkaishima shrimp fishing in Notsuke Bay will proceed till the seventh of subsequent month.
