The United Nations has designated the decade starting in 2021 as the "United Nations Decade of Ocean Science," and has stated the importance of focusing on ocean science in order to achieve the SDGs. LASBOS introduces education and research in Hokkaido University on marine science, marine ecosystems, ocean acidification, ocean microplastics, biodiversity, and regulation of fishery resources. We hope that many people will learn about protecting
the richness of the ocean.
In these courses, you will learn about the introductions of marine science, biodiversity, sustainable fisheries, stable food security, healthy functions, and others that will be the foundation for achieving SDGs. The content includes a wide range of academic fields, and we would like you to think about how each field is related to SDGs. Then, study the academic fields that you are interested in.
