This chapter discusses the expansion of American fishery into Alaska and the Japanese expansion into the eastern North Pacific. It describes the salmon and tuna industry and the spread of canneries in the United States and Japan. In June 1937, a fleet of Japanese vessels appeared in Bristol Bay to fish for crabs. The American fishing industry demanded the Bureau of Fisheries to exercise its duty to protect the fisheries of Alaska. The chapter discusses this widely publicized confrontation between the Americans and Japanese and its implication in the international regulation of fisheries.
