This year, the fishing moratorium began, and fishermen were busy pulling trawls and floats ashore

The fishing boat took a rest to prepare for the start of fishing

At the Beijiao village wharf, nearly 100 fishing boats are parked neatly and orderly on the berth. Each ship is parked at a certain safe distance, and sufficient channels are reserved between ships in various areas to facilitate the movement of ships. Many captains are working with the crew to bring the fishing nets and gear ashore, repair and inspect the mechanical equipment of the fishing boat, and prepare for the fishing in mid August.

In the bilge engine room, the chief engineer was busy cleaning the equipment

"All the fishing boats came ashore to clean up. The fishing boats were not badly damaged and the crew were nimble. By this time, they had been almost repaired." Master Yu, the 46 year old captain, and his 8 crew members returned to Hong Kong on time on the day of the fishing moratorium. On the afternoon of the 3rd, the reporter came to master Yu's fishing boat and saw that the crew were applying grease to the steel wire rope and bearing at this time, "this is to prevent corrosion and rust by seawater. Every inch should be coated and put away in the cabin after coating."

Master Yu is a native of Jiaocun village in the north of Lianjiang River. He has been fishing for a living for generations. For him, the boat is not only his second "home", but also like his other "child". "It is common to go to sea for ten days and a half months at a time. The current ship weighs more than 300 tons and has been used for nearly 8 years. Although it has some rust, its equipment is still very perfect." Master Yu said that in the past two days, he was also preparing to carry out overall maintenance and repaint the fishing boat to welcome the arrival of the fishing season with a new look.

The fishing nets are mended, the fishing lines are straightened, and the fishing lights are replaced. The shore is also busy

Besides the ship, the shore is also very busy. Beside the wharf of Beijiao village, fishing nets, Haitian cages, fishing boxes and other kinds of fishing gear are piled into "hills" one after another. Fishermen shuttle between the "hills", leaving busy figures.

The fishing nets were mended, the fishing lines were adjusted, and the fishing lights were replaced. The shore was also busy. The tongloong brand fishing lights produced by Jinhong factory had been used for a whole year. The crew checked one by one and found that some of the fishing lights were low. They can continue to be used next year. Only some bulbs need to be replaced. The crew smiled and said, "the service life of the high-quality fish lamp can be extended by more than 6 months. It can not only save the time for repairing and replacing the fish lamp, but also reduce material pollution and make a small contribution to protecting the earth's environment!"
