Abstract
 Marine aquaculture in Japan has developed steadily since the 1960s, and it occupies an important position in the Japanese marine fisheries at this stage. In 2004, it accounted for 21.4% of the total production and 29.0% of the total value. Accordingly, the achievement of sustainable marine aquaculture is one of the important issues when considering Japanese fisheries policy. This paper outlines several measures and a basic plan related to sustainable development of Japanese marine aquaculture.
