About Fishing

With nearly 30,000 km of coastline, Japan’s geographical conditions are very favourable for fishing. Its 2017 fishery production totalled 4.30 million tonnes. However, the industry on the decline and production is falling. As a result, Japan has had to increase its imports to meet its consumption needs.
