Marine Biotechnology
and Shizuoka Prefecture


Suruga Bay has the world's most diverse marine environment, from shallows to the deep sea, with great biodiversity spawned by the natural spring water that flows down from Mt. Fuji.


A wide range of industries are active here, including medicine and health, and the food industry.


An industry-academia-government collaborative project that will generate mutually promoting effects in such areas as medicine and health, food, optical and electronic technologies, and advanced agriculture.

Shizuoka Prefecture is an ideal locality that offers advantages for linking marine biotechnology to industrial development.
