|Other Titles:||Location Analysis of Taiwan's Fishing Landing Base in Bali, Indonesia|
Department of Geography, NTNU
After 1980s, the tuna longline fishing in Taiwan had a hard time because of the lack of labor and the shortage of offshore catches. In order to benefit from the local low-paid labor and tuna resources, many small longline vessels coming from Tonkung and Hsiau Liu-chiu have acted on export-trade agents’ recommendations, and headed for Southeast Asia as well as the Southwest Pacific states. There they use overseas harbors as a station for unloading catches, replenishing goods, materials, and airlifting the freshly caught tuna to the sashimi（slice of raw fish） market in Japan as well. This paper focuses on the activity of Taiwan's tuna longline vessels, processors and export-trade agents in Bali-Indonesia. The location of Bali provides many advantages: near to fishing grounds, a fully-equipped harbor, lower commodity prices, sufficient labor, good public security, constant flights to Japan and Taiwan, etc. According to the above advantageous conditions, Bali attracts an aggregation of many Taiwan's tuna-related businesses.
