Owner History

Planetary Info

Foochow was settled by Chinese immigrants from Terra. The early settlers found a warm world that had very small ice caps on its poles. The settlers found that most of the first half-century coping with diseases and the Dobar, large six-limbed predators reminiscent of black bears. Once the Dobar menace was contained and the diseases were controlled, Foochow's inhabitants turned their attention to aquaculture. For most of it's history Foochow has been a large exporter of fish and seafood. The discovery of minerals and rare elements also gave birth to an electronics industry, most of it centered on the city of Redswan. The planet's capital (and largest producer of seafood) is Vashura, located to the eastern part of Foochow's one continent, Min-How.[1]
