and consumption of marine products continues to increase.
Natural fish catches have already reached their peak,
and marine aquaculture is rapidly expanding around the world.
As a result, the environmental impact of fish droppings and leftover feed is becoming an
To leave delicious fish and beautiful nature to the next generation.
What we need now is land-based aquaculture that does not depend on the sea.
We, FRD Japan, will create a future where freshly caught, safe and secure fish can be produced
anywhere in the world using a Closed RAS system.
