The 2014 Study on the Policy Measures to Promote the Fishery Equipment Industry
Report No. 2014-12 Research Manager Eom, Seon Hee

The size of Korea’s fishery equipment market is not accurately estimated, but is considered to be over 4 trillion won roughly. And the world fishing and aquaculture equipment market is estimated to surpass 5 billion dollars. And the fishery equipment market covers the fishery industry including fishing, aquaculture, fishery product processing and distribution, fishery service and the fisheries policy industry. Fishing can be classified into fishing boat, fishing gear, ship’s fitting, sailing equipment and fishing equipment. Aquaculture is composed of breeding equipment, system and environmental control system. Fishery product processing equipment is classified into pre-treatment machine and equipment, secondary processing machine (meat tenderizer, etc.), hygiene and safety control system, packaging machine, etc. Fishery product distribution equipment is consisted of storage equipment, transportation equipment and ice. Artificial fish-reef, fishing operation equipment and operation safety equipment are classified as fishery policy project equipment. However, the classification is not yet confirmed and more discussion and further studies are required.


According to a survey on fishermen and fishery equipment producers, the following are suggested as the problems of Korea’s fishery equipment industry. First, users of the fishery equipment including fishermen, fishery product processors and distributors are not satisfied with the quality of domestic equipment, high prices and lack of customer services. Therefore, they are exposed to the risk of safety accidents and increasing management cost as they use second-hand machinery or substitute equipment. Second, the demands for automation and mechanization increase as the fishing society is aging and suffers a severe labor shortage. However, the policies to address the issue are not sufficiently implemented. Third, the suppliers who produce and sell fishery equipment lose competitiveness along with poor management conditions as overseas part makers, especially emerging Chinese ones, enter the domestic market. Fourth, a comprehensive policies and institutions that can address the above-mentioned issues are not in place. In summary, the domestic fishery equipment industry has the problems such as lack of R&D investment, lack of support system for producers and insufficient policy support to promote demands.


Therefore, the legal institutions should be improved to address the issues. In order to nurture the fishery equipment industry, R&D investment should be increased and the support system should be established to promote distribution of the fishery equipment and to help advancement into the overseas markets. And the related polices should be developed based on the legal institutions. The study proposes relevant specific policies along with a draft for the law on promotion of the fishery equipment industry.
