National Fisheries University


The National Fisheries University is the only fisheries-specialized higher education institution in Japan bearing the term “fisheries” in its name and is run under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries of Japan. During its history of more than 70 years, it has contributed to the growth of Japan’s fisheries industry by sending out many talented graduates who are now playing major roles at the forefront of the fisheries industry, as well as other relevant professions, both in Japan and abroad.

It was transformed into an independent administrative agency in 2001; all the faculty and staff have since been making concerted efforts to provide ever-expanding and advanced levels of education and research, so as to achieve the goal of “cultivating professionals who will play leading roles in the fisheries industry in the future,” the institutional purpose defined in the Act on the National Fisheries University, Independent Administrative Agency.
