Perception of the Ocean and interests on the Oceanic culture have been on the rise centered around related schools. Identification on the perception of the Ocean and Oceanic culture is needed for the opening consideration to the Postmodernist thought and this could be a cornerstone for being complacent on the Ocean. For this consideration, we explore characteristics of the Ocean based on the fishermen’s interview who engaged in the field of Deep-Sea Fisheries in 1960’s Confucian values in Joseon made people consider the Ocean a negative and limited spaces. However, the Ocean is no longer unknown world with the point of industrial base to the Ocean. As Deep-Sea Fisheries began, experiential perception for it was accumulated. In this paper, we describe the characteristics with fishing boats’ life culture focused on the inherent spatiality within experiential perception and those are as follows; a) an ocean is the spatiality beyond territories. By this spatiality, Deep-Sea fishing boats build up power structure and a culture of hierarchy as an independent territory. Naturally, this leads to form the community culture highlighted to a network. b) an Ocean is a kind of constant floating space by natural rhythm according to the nature so it has openness without any privileges among independent nations. c) an Ocean forms the foundation of sensorial culture beyond visual space. d) an Ocean is the primitive place full of wonder and fears and it has folklore with strong incantation. An ocean is place in the middle of connected nature spaces without any clogginess so the nature of Ocean itself and the foundation of human’s imagination is beyond space of time. However, by the point of experiential perception, offshore fisheries is enough to distinguishes with deep-sea fisheries. Offshore is the ocean belonged to sovereignty while deep-sea is an emancipated ocean with reversion of sovereignty. For this reason, an ocean is needed to have the conception of multi hierarchy not belonging to property with political power so we have to consider an ocean is a new space beyond human’s desire on territories.
