Abstract:Recreational fishery becomes increasingly popular in Taiwan during recent years. It is disputable whether or not the recreation fishing boats, which run transportation and sightseeing business, can comply with the ROC Ship Law and relevant regulations. This study discusses the legal nature of the recreation fishing boats, the activities of the recreational fishery, the roles government agencies in the administration of the recreation fishing boats. It also analyzes current management and administration styles of the recreational fishery.
Actually, under the ROC Ship Law, a ship, which carry more than 12 passengers is defined as a passenger ship, and is subject to strict control in respect of its safety standards, seafarers, registration, and administration, etc. If a recreation fishing boat falls within this definition, it shall be treated as a passenger ship no matter whether it is run buy a recreational fishery operator. Unfortunately, there appear some difficulties while the Ministry of Transportation and Communications exercises its control on the recreation fishing boat. This study suggests the ROC government agencies adopt those rules which govern passengers ship as provided by the Ship Law, the Seafarer Law, etc., while governing the recreation fishing boats. Also, the recreational fishery operator, which runs a recreational fishing boat, shall establish a shipping company in accordance with the Shipping Industry Law. For those boats or operators, which cannot meet the above requirements, the government agencies shall prohibit them or prevent them from running a busineess in order to secure the safety of life at sea.
