Reclaimed land for human's agricultural production perennially (since 1970) is now going back to the marshy area for fishes and birds. Next month I'll go on a field trip there: the broadest biotope site in Japan with which local government of Shiga prefecture -- its administrative district encircles Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan -- has, ongoing since 2001, attempted to validate the importance of interference zone between rich soil and clean freshwater, i.e., eco-ethicaly, the ecological embrace between the exploitation for self‐preservation and the altruistic behavior for all species.
