An Okinawa City fisherman collecting seaweed in open waters near Tsuken Island in Uruma City has been found dead in four-meters-deep water.

Kazuo Asato, a 54-year-old member of the Katsuren Fisherman's Cooperative, had been collecting seaweed for his family about 200 meters off the island. The Nakagusuku Coast Guard Office says Asato was spotted in the water by a colleague. Authorities say a hose sending air from on board a boat to the fisherman was found detached from ‘Asato's mouth.
