Large nets became increasingly common during the first half of the nineteenth century, particularly in fisheries in the far north and east of the island, where only the occasional government official or Russian explorer disturbed the privacy of the contractors and their agents. Persistent lobbying by contractors led in 1844 to a lift of the ban on pound traps wherever gill-netting was not feasible, but because the contractors were the self-appointed arbiters of feasibility, the action was tantamount to permitting pound-trap use throughout the Ezochi, not only by contractors but by a growing number of Wajinchi-based independents as well.
During the last quarter of the eighteenth century southern Hokkaido was hit by the first of a ― 55 ― series of extended periods of poor fishing. The herring stopped running in the Fukuyama area in 1776, and by 1783 catches were bad throughout the Wajinchi. They remained poor until the first decade of the nineteenth century. "People will starve to death this year," predicted gloomy residents of Esashi in 1784, but there is no evidence that conditions were ever nearly that desperate. Indeed, the domain's low population, combined with the ready availability of an abundance of marine life other than herring, put Wajinchi residents in a much better position during this period than their neighbors to the south, stricken by the Tenmei famine.
