| The Marine Fisheries Research and Development Center conducts trial operations and sales at fishery sites for the purpose of developing unused resources and fishing grounds and commercializing new fishery production methods. These researches are to contribute to "sustaining stable supply of marine products" and "sound development of the marine industry", which is the basic principle of the Fisheries Basic Act.
The fishery is exposed to the severe external environment such as competition with the global fish market and fluctuations in the supply of materials such as fuel, in addition to the characteristic that it is difficult to stabilize the amount of catch and price to be produced. Fisheries management is required to evolve in order to respond appropriately to these. For that purpose, along with the development of resources and fishing grounds that are not fully utilized, a sustainable production system of fishing boat fishery considering resource management and energy saving, low cost, high profit type fishery production system utilizing the latest technology Improvement and development, and promotion of demonstration projects for the practical application of new aquaculture technology.
In order to resolve these issues, Marine Fisheries Research and Development Center conducts development researches in which employees themselves carry out empirical tests at fishery sites.
In recent years, the Development Research Center has been engaged in the development of efficient operation methods that utilize diverse data, the latest ICT technology and robot technology, and production technology to increase the value of catches in oceanic and offshore fisheries.
In addition, in collaboration with the fishery industry, including the commercialization test of new aquaculture technology, the Marine Fisheries Research and Development Center is going to act as a window to promote the achievements of the Japan Fisheries Research and Education Agency.
The Marine Fisheries Research and Development Center will continue to actively work in the future in order to be able to contribute to the stable supply of marine products and the sustainable development of the fishery industry.
