The Mangokuura Sea is an immense inland sea with an area of 7.2 ha located behind Watanoha Port and surrounded by mountains on Oga Peninsula. The name “Mangoku (10,000 koku of rice) Ura (Sea)” comes from an old story that when Date Tadamune, the 2nd generation lord of the Sendai domain, visited this place, he said “If land reclamation is given to this land, it will produce 10,000 kuku of rice.” In the Edo period, coastal salt production was done in this inland sea under the promotion of the Sendai domain. Since the Taisho period, cultivation of oysters and laver has been active in this area. Here. Ishinomaki is said to be the birthplace of oyster cultivation. So the high-quality breeding oyster of this nutritious sea is especially famous not only in Japan but also all over the world. The Mangokuura Sea is also a popular place for gathering of clams and fishing of flounder and rock trout. The Mangokuura Sea is the “Mother Sea” that produces fresh seafood.

Jp En

The Ariake Sea is the largest bay surrounded by the prefectures of Fukuoka, Saga, Nagasaki, and Kumamoto. The bay, the deepest point of which is no more than 50 meters deep, is shallow to a considerable distance from the shore. The water depth differs largely by the ebb and tide. The range of a spring tide is over 4 meters. Laver cultivation has developed using this spring range. At low tide emerges the tideland, which is the habitat of rare species that cannot be found anywhere else such as mudskippers, pen shells, warasubo (a species of eel goby), and fiddler crabs. The Ariake Sea has been providing people with food since the ancient times. A lot of shell mounds have been discovered near the coastline, from which clams, arch shells, and fish bones of Japanese seaperch and others were excavated. Living aquatic resources in the Ariake Sea has supported people’s diet.
