Japan is strongly involved in Census of Marine Life research activities. CoML Japan is coordinated by JAMSTEC, the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology. In addition, two CoML Ocean Realm Field Projects – NaGISA (nearshore) and CMarZ (zooplankton) – have coordinating offices in Japan, as does the Future of Marine Animal Populations (FMAP) program.
