The UN Seahorse
This page has been set up to commemorate the virtual mooring of the marine research ship, "UN Seahorse" at Yokohama, Japan in 1998. Its basic aim is to generate awareness of oceanic issues around Japan, and to create a global perspective within which preservation and management of oceans can take place.
