The floating offshore wind sector has become the latest great revolution in the renewable energy sector, especially in wind energy. Floating offshore wind energy could take advantage of 80% of global offshore wind resources, located in waters deeper than 50m. This means, according to the European Technology & Innovation Platform on Wind Energy (ETIP Wind), being able to supply more electricity than the entire world consumes today, being the great solution that allows us to cover electricity demand without resorting to polluting sources.
According to Sarens, a reference in crane rental, heavy lifting and transport engineering services, and who has recently joined the World Forum Offshore Wind (WFO), the world's first organization dedicated exclusively to fostering the growth of offshore wind energy in all the world; One of the problems that Spain faces in the installation of offshore wind energy is the depth of its waters, which makes it difficult to install offshore wind farms, which requires shallower coasts.

The team of Professor Goro Yoshizaki (Fish Aquaculture) of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology said that he succeeded in the world's first successful growth of large numbers of reproductive cells, which are the source of rainbow trout eggs and sperm, in a test tube. Published in "Communications Biology". Eggs and sperm were made from only one male stem cell and 1700 hatched. It is steadily growing into an adult fish and is expected as a technology that enables mass production while protecting valuable fish from fish resources.
Prof. Yoshizaki explained that he would like to contribute to aquaculture production and conservation of endangered species. "A salmon or trout close to rainbow trout can be used for conservation projects in a few years. Application to bluefin tuna will be realized in about 5 years. I want to aim for."
