There are many types of shrimp that can be harvested in the prefecture, but in Bisan Seto, you can get salmon, tiger shrimp and red shrimp that grow on sandy land. It is landed in the sea about 30 minutes from the port by bottoming fishing using shrimp nets. Depart every day from afternoon to early morning, late evening to evening. 1 to 10kg is landed at a time, and the net is pulled up 20 to 1 times a day. By raising the net, you can sort out fish other than shrimp by hand. Sorting work is so hard work that some fishermen have tendonitis. Sorting will continue until you return to the port.
