In 1942, the United States began planning the occupation of Japan, arriving with a series of policies designed to completely transform Japanese life. One example was the effort to transform Japanese fisheries into an American model. The chapter discusses SCAP (Supreme Commander Allied Powers) policies that rebuilt the Japanese fishing industry. It also describes the establishment of MacArthur fishing zone, which opened a limited area around Japan for fishing.
