Next year we will mark the 10th year since the launch of our first fishing fleet, which is known as Hagi Oshima Sendanmaru.
At the time of the establishment, we never dreamed of receiving this kind of award, so we are very surprised, but also honored to receive this amazing prize.
We sincerely appreciate everyone who has supported us and engaged with us for these 10 years.
We strongly feel an era has arrived at last when people have come to focus on the marine environment across the world, especially the plastic issue.
Our company Ghibli is determined to continue activities to encourage as many people as possible to turn their eyes to the oceanic environment and deepen their understanding.
Thank you very much again.
