There is something very doubtful about this whole research project and together with Setsuko, who turns out to be the daughter of one of the leading fishermen of the district and who has returned from Tokyo to work at the local newspaper office, and with Raisuke a newspaperman, Senkichi tries to get to the bottom of the affair which is slowly crippling the livelihood of the community.
After visiting Sukegawa, head of the local fishing association, Senkichi is beaten by a group of ruffians and on being nursed back to health by a geisha named Anko, he finds that boats belonging to Sukegawa are fishing in the restricted area at night, the catches conveyed to a motor-vessel and put on sale at a distant port.
It is during a storm that he and Raisuke present to the fishermen proof of Sukegawa's activities and they immediately rise to do battle. The criminals are finally brought to justice, and all ends well for Senkichi and Setsuko, and Raisuke and the geisha, Anko.
