Project Title: 
Fishing in Ehime: One Cooperative in Ozu
Project Abstract: 
This project is a study of the Japanese fishing industry and the ways in which globalization, climate change, and cultural shifts have impacted it with a particular focus on one fishing family in the city of Ozu, located in Ehime Prefecture on the southern island of Shikoku, Japan. My project will ask in what ways has life changed for these fishermen, their communities and Japanese society because of these massive changes?
