The President of the Japan Fisheries Research and Education Agency (FRA), Dr. NAKAYAMA Ichiro, visited JIRCAS on May 20, 2021 and exchanged opinions with JIRCAS President KOYAMA Osamu and other executive staff. The two presidents, who took office in April this year, introduced the new structure of their respective organizations in response to the newly launched 5th Medium to Long-term Plan.
The field of fisheries is an important research area for JIRCAS. On the other hand, FRA also attaches great importance to the results and local information of the fisheries research conducted by JIRCAS in Southeast Asian countries. They both agreed to use this visit as an opportunity to further deepen collaboration and cooperation on fisheries research.
