Annual field survey in Hyogo Prefecture

MBL faculty Ryuta Terada recently attended an annual monitoring survey of Sargassum / Ecklonia community that is conducted by the Phycology team of Kobe University and collaborative researchers.

This project has been funded by the Japanese Ministry of Environment, and MBL is one of the members of this project. This week, we conducted the survey at two sites that are facing the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Japan, respectively.
