Intertidal Flat Experimental Facility (IFEF)

 Research is conducted on developing technologies for restoring lost tidal flats. The experiment was started in 1995 when IFEF was completely free of organisms. Seawater intake from Kurihama Bay and the environmental conditions (tide, wave, and current) have been continuing since then.

     * Seaweed and other organisms living in tidal-flats are growing in the tank and the ecosystems are still developing.
