Sushi and sashimi, two important Japanese dishes, have gained popularity around the world. Because Japan is surrounded by sea on all sides, seafood and seaweed have become staple ingredients. Because seafood is so popular in Japan, the marketing and manufacturing of processed marine products, as well as the entire fishery industry, have flourished.

Crab is one of the most popular seafood ingredients in Japan, enjoyed by both tourists and locals alike. This necessitates the preservation and processing of crab meat in order to keep the crabs fresh.

"I import crab from all over the world, process them, and sell them in Japan," said Noriaki Nakamura of Tsukiji Kanisho. At the end of the year, crab is the most expensive to sell. However, crab prices have dropped this year, so I believe it will be interesting. The fish farming raft includes a solar panel and a camera."

"I think seafood is the most important food for people," said Naoya Kakizoe of the Marine Eco-Label Japan Council. The reason for this is that they have been catching wild fish. In this sense, human food is critical. We created this MEL system to ensure that future generations can continue to eat fish. Its rule requires us to protect the ecosystem and our resources."

Japan's fishery industry is changing as a result of global environmental awareness, communication, and digital technology based on the Internet of Things (IoT).
