泊漁港

The Tomari fishing port is a class 2 fishing port (a catch-all category for those with a range of use broader than just the locals but narrower than the whole of Japan) in central Tottori. Put in place as a boat guardhouse under the direct control of the feudal clans long ago, it was considered by the feudal lords to be an important unloading dock for the fishing boats. Now managed by the prefecture, Tomari’s fishing port is maintained as a permitted fishing zone and continues to be used as a hub for central Tottori’s coastal fisheries. The port’s main catches include sea bream (tai), yellowtail (hamachi), squid (ika), horse mackerel (aji).

鳥取県中部の第二種漁港。古くは藩直轄の舟番所が置かれ、海産物資の水揚港としても歴代藩主に重視されてきました。現在は県管理のもと、漁港漁場整備長期計画に基づき、県中部の沿岸漁業の拠点として整備が続けられています。主にタイ・ハマチ・イカ・アジなどが水揚げされます。
