Fishing Village Marina Station Opens at Seosan's Samgilpo Port

Seosan city, Chungnam Province announced on August 29 that the fishing village marina station is officially open. It can accommodate marine leisure ships like yacht and boat at Samgilpo Port, the national fishing port.

The fishing village marina station is a station that accommodates marine leisure activities in a safe and convenient way, and it is the space that provides marine leisure services by linking and supporting nearby marina ports.

Among 111 national fishing port, Samgilpo Port in Seosan is the first fishing village marina station pilot project by the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries. Daesan Regional Office of Oceans and Fisheries spent government budget of KRW 2.4 billion to build mooring facilities with 16 berths.

Since the city has received the maintenance from the Daesan Regional Office last September, it has been preparing for the official opening by supplementing the facilities and revising related ordinances to come up with price system.

It is expected to resolve conflict between the fishermen and the visitors by preparing the mooring facilities, and also play as a middle stopover for repair and rest.

"The demand for marine leisure is expected to grow due to the decreased work hours and change of the leisure trends," said Maeng Jeong-ho, mayor of Seosan, adding "We will make efforts to revitalize the marina station and expand infrastructure to fulfill the growing demand."
