What is the “special class” of the land-based aquaculture experience project? Learn the blessings of the sea and the importance of life. “Rikuyo” is a land-based aquaculture experience project for children to learn, worry about, and raise sea fish. In parallel with the experience of land-based aquaculture, the special classes teach local experts about the familiar sea, the creatures that live there, and the entire environment and ecosystem connected to the sea. The purpose of this class is to help you feel the connection between the sea and people, and to understand the importance of preserving the environment and ecosystems as something that belongs to you.

Efforts of “Fukushima-style fisheries” to revitalize coastal fisheries in Fukushima Prefecture
The first special class was a tour and class at the Fukushima Prefectural Research Institute of Fisheries Resources. The Fukushima Prefectural Research Institute of Fisheries Resources aims to realize a “Fukushima-style fishery” that aims to increase the income of fishermen while using marine resources sustainably. In order to achieve this, it is necessary to release seedlings to stabilize fishing recruitment and to manage resources appropriately. It was established with the aim of revitalizing coastal fisheries in Fukushima Prefecture, which suffered enormous damage from the earthquake and nuclear accident, and to address new research issues such as the promotion of effective fish farming and the advancement of resource management. rice field.
In the special class, we observed the flounder, abalone, and sweetfish that are cultivated and released within the facility, as well as star flounder, which we are working on at the research level. We will do what is happening in the sea of ​​Fukushima. You will also learn about changes in the sea in Fukushima (global warming, acidification, earthquake disaster, fish species and catches), facility
introductions, and the cycle of forests, rivers, and oceans conducted by the National Research Institute of Fisheries Resources.
What is the “land aquaculture project”?
“Land Farming Project” is an abbreviation of “Land Farming”, a land farming experience project for children to learn about sea fish, worry about it, and raise it. Children finally decide what to do with the fish they raised. The conclusion is born by coming into contact with various learnings and opinions. Now that digital learning is promoted, we would like to provide children with a real experience to think about the blessings of the sea and the importance of life.

While collaborating with companies and experts in the project area, each school came to a conclusion about what to do with the raised flounder at the end of the project, while learning about local sea-related issues and fish ecology.
