Alternate Title



When all the fish suddenly disappear from the seas one day leaving only the whales behind, the fisheries ministry sees it as an ideal opportunity to experiment and sets up giant fish tanks in space! A facility opens in Onomichi to train prospective space fishermen and, because of a recent equal employment law, six space fisherwomen are also accepted onto the program…
