Project Summary (PDF:204KB)
Japan is a country surrounded by wide variety of ocean environments and fish species.
The project aims to develop a next-generation aquaculture system to establish a sustainable aquaculture industry and to protect Japanese fish food culture.
We develop a next-generation aquaculture system that integrates novel "food" "seeds" and "places" research.
We conduct researches on novel "feed", "seed", and "place" for sustainable aquaculture; fish-free feed, short-term seed development, and aquaculture system with environment adaptability. We integrate the outputs of research to a new aquaculture system applicable to various environments and fish species in Japan to support Japan's rich food culture.
The research will lead to the sustainable supply of the world's high-quality protein sources and the maintenance and conservation of marine resources.
