Fry production

Seed production of bastard halibut and other 17 species
In 1965, the Aquaculture Research Institute, Kindai University was the first in the world to produce farm-hatched Japanese flounder fry. To date, they have succeeded in 18 species. These efforts are helping to prevent depletion of natural fish stocks from overfishing and have brought down prices of prized game fish by enabling mass-production of rare species. This work is enabling a transition from fishing to farming. With the potential for food shortages looming in the future, the vision of harvesting the sea for resources is leading to solid results.
