Resources Enhancement Section

We are conducting research on resource enhancement of commercially important marine animals and plants in the coastal waters of the Tohoku region to promote further sea farming. Presently, investigations aimed at enhancement of varidus animal populations by means of transplantation of artificially produced young animals have been conducted. Research is focused to detail the conditions required for transplanted animals along with their development, an effective scale of transplantation, and a scientifically resonable size for seedlings. Studies to maintain the genetic diversity and collection of genetic strains of brown algae are also conducted.
