Nereus Director of Policy, Yoshitaka Ota, gave the keynote lecture at the 20 year anniversary symposium for Satoumi (Japanese coastal restoration), in Okayama Prefecture in Japan. The symposium had over 500 in attendance, including local fishers who are interested in the state of future oceans, following a national TV broadcast program featuring Nereus Program. Ota also led a one day workshop with 100 students the day before to enhance the region’s capacity for ocean education.
