Wagu fishing port

Beautiful colorful gillnets

Wagu Fishing Port, located in the center of Shima Town and facing the open ocean, is one of the largest in Mie Prefecture.
Seafood is caught by gillnets, diver fishing, pole and line fishing, etc., so it is characterized by a large number of high-quality fish such as spiny lobster, abalone, bonito, squid, yellowtail, sea bream, and sea bream.
In spring, the ban on ama fishing is lifted, followed by bonito fishing called Kenken, which reaches its peak in early summer.
In October, the Ise lobster fishing season opens, and bright red gillnets add color to the fishing port, which lasts until spring.
