Japan | Government set to create first deep-sea MPA

The government plans to designate waters around the Izu-Ogasawara oceanic trench as a marine protected area (MPA) that limits fishing and other human activities.


Behind the designation is the government’s aim to safeguard an environment said to be home to a trove of new marine species.
