Outline of Lecture

Learning the waterside environment in the sea of Tokyo

Lecturer

Shigeru Enomoto

Moderator: Fumiya Okuyama, visiting professor of Industry-University and Community Cooperation Promotion Organization, Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology

At fishing college, we study fish ecology, food for fish, and waterside environment from various perspectives through fishing.

Many people are interested in the waterside environment, but there are many people who have only ambiguous images about the environment and do not know the specific meaning. They know that the sea is important, but on the other hand, they cannot answer to the question on the fish swimming in that sea. So, in this lecture, we would like to tell you about the story of the sea in Tokyo you may be familiar with. While the sea area of Japan is the 6th largest in the world, the sea in Tokyo is the 3rd largest in Japan. I'm sure you are surprised. The sea in Tokyo includes all the way from the inner part of Tokyo Bay where our university is located, to Izu Oshima Island, Izu Seven Islands, and Ogasawara Islands. Surprisingly, it is not recognized that sea bass is swimming in the canal and tuna is swimming in the open ocean of this sea. Let's hear the story from Mr. Shigeru Enomoto, who loves fishing and became a ward assemblyman with his recognized activities to clean the sea in Minato Ward.
