All who have been out to sea are aware of the dangers that our beautiful oceans possess and are always thankful when the ship returns to port safely.

Sadly that hasn't happened this time. My condolences to the sailors and their families of this tragedy.

It seems bleak, but I hope theres good news for them and their loved ones sakes.

Fingers crossed for them. It's a really tough job.

Sanma is gaining popularity in mainland Asia, resulting in increasing foreign competition. This pushes boats further out as the story describes. Sanma is thought of as an autumn food in Japan, but the boats were out in early summer.
