Some of the things we agreed to inspect were: hotels, marinas, restaurants, airports, ground transportation, boats and, most important, the fishery. To date, everything is at least adequate and in place in this one region…..except for the last two "little" items. We inspected one boat manufacturing company that was just now considering how to modify production to produce boats designed to fish, as opposed to just pleasure crafts. They have the potential, but have much to learn. We do not know about any other facilities that may exist in other parts of China. We had only one day scheduled to actually fish, and due to poor weather and technical problems with the boat, we still have no idea whether there are any game fish to be had in the region of South Hainan. We were shown pictures of a few marlin and sailfish, but a picture isn't going to convince international anglers to suddenly descend on South China. We also made it clear that it will not only take time and extensive effort to verify whether or not an adequate fishery exists to support international tourism, but it cannot be done with their current local boats, captains and crews. Our hosts seemed to take this all in stride, conveying a confident and pleased attitude with regards to this "minor detail."
