Abstract: In recent years water pollution has become a serious problem in anchorage and other sea areas, as a result of residential waste water from hinterland fishing communities of fishing ports, and waste from fishery processing. In many fishing villages the handling of raw sewage faces the inconvenience of narrow streets and crowded housing conditions. Improvement of public sanitation is urgently needed to increase the living comfort of these local communities. The fisheries agency has implemented the fishing community environment improvement projects since 1978, working to improve the environment of fishing communities at the same time as improving fishing port facilities.Improvement of facilities for fishery operations, drinking water, and community waste water facilities are efforts to completely refresh the water environment of fishing communities. These efforts are indispensable in working to purify polluted sea areas by aiming at the source of pollution.
