The seventh installment of the "Field of Knowledge" series, "Sea, Forest, River: In a Connected World," has been released.

"Field of Knowledge" is a series project that focuses on Hokkaido University's vast research and educational fields and approaches the cutting-edge knowledge cultivated there.
In the seventh installment released this time, ``In a world where seas, forests, and rivers are connected,'' we introduce the ``Akkeshi Marine Research Station'' located in Akkeshi Town. The Akkeshi Marine Research Station was established in 1931 as Japan's only subarctic marine research station whose main research target is cold-water marine organisms. Located under the cliffs of Cape Aikappu, a scenic tourist attraction, we are engaged in a wide range of research and education on marine ecosystems in the beautiful natural environment of a national park.
This time, we will introduce the facilities and research at the Akkeshi Marine Laboratory based on interviews with researchers and students at the laboratory.
