Conservation and Management of Coastal Ecosystems


We perform various researches to effectively and sustainably promote fisheries in coastal seas. Under the philosophy "REVIVAL of the FERTILE SEA", emphasis is placed on environmental conservation and coastal ecology, particularly concerning tidal-flat, seaweed bed, and harmful algal blooms.


1) Molecular ecology (Hamaguchi, M.)

2) Coastal conservation ecology, algal ecophysiology (Yoshida, G.)
