Cross straits share the same fishing zone and the number of fishing boats is enormous. Besides, on account of net-strangling, collision of fishing boats at sea, sometimes even serious highjack events, fishermen from both straits more often than not have dispute while working at sea. However, with the limited amount of patrol ships and once in a while places where these incidents take place are far away from Taiwan,thereupon,as far as highjacking events are concerned, slow action cannot save a critical situation ,so the way of handling such events is always not as expected.
It has been fourteen years since cross-strait authorities signed the “Kimmen agreement”. Because they can’t make a breakthrough in mutual legal assistance or aid when it comes to the law aspect and with the changes of political situation,there is no way to effectively solve problems caused by bilateral fishing development. Taking the fishing dispute of hijacking for example, not only does it endanger our life,safe of property but influence our international image. Thus, it is urgent to set up a basic handling mode.
Above is the motive why I discuss handling mode of cross-strait fishery dispute.This discussion mainly divided into six chapters:
Chapter2: delibration on standards of categorizing cross-strait fishery dispute,contents,current handling mode ,fundamental reasons and so on.
Chapter3: discussion on domestic highjacking events and analysis on our countermeasure.
Chapter4: analyzing the fishery-dispute- handling mechanism of both straits and comparing the difference.
Chapter5: discussion on setting up a handling mode,including consensuses,prevention strategies,emergency response guidelines and how to proceed to develop a handling mode.
Chapter6: conclusion of this discussion and bring forth research results,findings as well as subsequent suggestions to enhance cross-strait positive interaction,thus,guarantee the rights and interests of people from both sides.
