While Osaka Bay is strongly associated with eutrophication from the economic boom period, in recent years the western and southern parts of the bay have actually seen a substantial decrease in nutrition, with impacts on fisheries including the loss of color from seaweed. With the aim of bringing back the bountiful Osaka Bay that was an intimate part of our daily lives, to the extent of calling it "Naniwa," ("fish garden") this project is based in southern Osaka Bay, and carries out comprehensive efforts including the creation of fisheries through alimentation, development of a fisheries distribution system through use of IT, and the conducting of events to promote fish consumption among youth.
