In the future in Onomichi, Hiroshima fish disappear from the sea around the world and only whales live in the ocean. The Ministry of Fishery decides to set up giant experimental Universe Fish Tanks in space. The Onomichi Universe Fishery Union is established and begins to train space fishermen.

This is a show created to promote a gacha game that ended service just half a year after the show aired.
In the future, fish have disappeared from the Earth's oceans.
In response to this, the government takes the only rational course of action: create oceans in space to be fished from.

well yet another anime about cute girl doing things that pretends to have a plot instead of making it a slice of life comedy that it is

story 3
this is basically cute girl doing things everything else either feels badly used or the creators did not care about it the part about the characters being the first females to be this new age fisher is a bit hard to believe and is only used in the most cheapest way possible having the male fishers make a occasional sexist remark telling them to quit but really it just feels like it was used poorly ...
