Funakoshi Station / Environment Science

It is the cultured, most suitable environment of the fishery products which the Uwa Sea receiving the Ehime Nannyo area has the complicated topography having a Rias coast, and the depth of the water is deep, and have the inflow of the tide from the Kuroshio Current.

Furthermore, the clean sea bringing up coral is scenic and is appointed in the underwater park of Ashizuri-Uwakai National Park.

We push forward a research to use it for the marine products industry continuously while following this splendid environment in the environment life science  section.
