The Fisherman's Quarter

From Shishinza’s Dossier

A further testament to the insight and planning of Harbormaster Watanabe Al-Zayan, the Fisherman’s Quarter accommodates the myriad small-craft that perform what may be the most vital maritime service for Broken Wave City – feeding its people. With essentially no arable land, and all rice and other staple foodstuffs needing to be imported, the city turned to the sea to feed its growing population. Fortunately, the shallow waters of the Phoenix coast were already rich fishing grounds; the emergence of Kaigen’s Island from the sea seems to have only enhanced their productivity, creating warmer shoals teeming with sea life. Fishing boats endlessly cycle from the Fisherman’s Quarter, out to sea and back, bringing ashore rich harvests of cod, mackerel, and tuna, more exotic species such as swordfish and shark, and even bales of red-brown seaweed, a “vegetable” coming to prominence as a staple in local cuisine.
