*1: Regional Fisheries Industry Co-Creation Center

In October 2022, this institution was established on our university's Hakodate campus as a "hub" that connects local students, researchers, educational institutions, companies, and governments. By collaborating on research and development between industry, academia, government, and finance, we aim to develop regional industries, create innovation, and develop the human resources that support them.

 

*2: Hakodate Mariculture Project

We are promoting complete aquaculture technology for king salmon and Macombe, and as a pioneering initiative, aquaculture research based on regional carbon neutrality (RCN), which uses seaweed farming to absorb CO2 emitted by fish aquaculture, and forming a community aquaculture industry in the region. At the same time, it is an initiative that aims to realize a sustainable fisheries and ocean city by bringing together companies and young people and establishing them in the area through practical education and research on the ground. With Hakodate City as the project entity, we applied for the Cabinet Office's ``Local Universities and Regional Industry Revitalization Grant Project'' in 2020, and were the only project in the country to be selected as an eligible project.
