The Award of the Japanese Society of Fisheries Engineering was given for the studies on ecology and restoration of seagrass・seaweed bed along the coast of Japan from the view on Fisheries Engineering. This study is made up of three parts. The first is for methods of submarine forest formation considering local limiting factors of distribution. The second is for seaspace features of "Isoyake area" in southwest Japan. The third is for excellent examples of eelgrass Zostera marina bed restoration continuing along the coast of Seto Inland Sea, Japan. In this paper, outline of contents on the awardee lecture in 30th May 2015 Meeting in Nagasaki were noted.
