Did you know that Japan is the largest fish-eating country in the world? With only 20% of the land viable for use in agriculture, it is not surprising that Japan consumes 7.5 billion tons of marine products each year. With many fishermen getting older, as well as issues with climate change, there seems to be a need for students to learn about fishing and the sea.
Japan Fish College is scheduled to open in April 2023, offering a curriculum for individuals to learn about fish, fishing culture, and sustainability. This will be Japan's first vocational school for students with courses about fishing, aquaculture, cooking processes, distribution, environment and tourism leisure relating to fish and the fishing industry. The proposed building site is the Misaki area, Miura City, Kanagawa Prefecture.
I don't know anything about fishing, but without any other pictures for this post, I'll show a couple of fish related stitching projects.
