Abstract

By exploring the institutional and political fishing histories of North Korea, this paper traces developments in interactions with the Soviet Union in the 1970s. Drawing on newly found archival material from the Russian State Archive of the Economy and the Soviet Union’s Ministry of Fisheries Archive, the paper considers the reality of such encounters. In particular it analyses research exchanges between North Korea and the Soviet Union, the security paradoxes created by these as well as interactions between North Korean and the Soviet Union in the Sea of Okhotsk. Fish, Fisheries Researchers and Fishing Technologies are certainly vibrant, active, lively matters in the landscapes of exchange between these two nations and their complex relationships of socialist fraternity.
