Creating a world where
people and nature can coexist
in harmony for the next 100 years
Today, the natural environment is in danger.
Plastic causes ocean pollution.
Marine resources are decreasing
due to overfishing.
The oceans are being destroyed
at an unprecedented rate.
It is said that in the next 20 years,
many aquatic organisms
will no longer be able to survive.
People have developed their civilization
by the water.
We have been moved by the beauty of nature,
learned wisdom from the unknown nature,
and received the power to live.
If this trend continues,
we will lose these benefits forever.
In order for people to live in harmony
with aquatic organisms for many years to come.
By researching and developing technology
to perfectly recreate
ecosystems to conserve
all aquatic organisms for the future.
We will continue to develop "Ark of Innoqua"
that will leave all aquatic life
in the future and deliver its value to people.
ARTIFICIAL ECOSYSTEM ARTIFICIAL ECOSYSTEM
Combining the know-how of aquarists,
who have built aquatic ecosystems as a hobby,
with IoT and AI technologies,
Innoqua is developing a system to manage
and nurture a variety of living organisms, from microorganisms to fish and corals.
※An "artificial ecosystem" is defined
as an environment that is as close to nature
as possible by balancing a wide range of parameters,
including water quality
(concentration of more than 30 trace elements),
water temperature, water flow, lighting environment,
and the relationship between various organisms, including microorganisms.
SERVICE SERVICE SERVICE
Value we can provide
HIROMERU and NOKOSU.
Increase awareness of importance and
value of coral reefs through education
Through the experience of touching real creatures.
We will increase the number of people who value nature by communicating
the fun of living organisms and the current state of the natural environment.
Conserve coral reefs & biodiversity with
cutting edge science and technologies
We aim to become a doctor of the sea by conducting a series of high-speed
demonstrations in a closed environment using artificial ecosystems,
to conduct health diagnoses and search for medicines.

Creating a new way of people and nature
I have been breeding tropical fish, ancient fish, shrimp, coral, etc. at home since I was a child. And I've always been attracted to their beauty, mystery and fun.
However, after that, as I studied mechanical engineering and engineering such as AI at university, I thought that "creatures do not make a lot of money and it is not cool to do business in such fields", so I tried to launch a hardware venture. I have gained various experiences. On the other hand, can we continue engineering as it is and create a company that can really change the world? I have begun to worry about it. No matter how much I thought about it, I didn't know the correct answer, but when I thought, "Let's find something that makes me hot anyway," I remembered aquatic creatures such as fish and coral.
From there, I met various people involved in aquatic life. Among them, the ones who were overwhelmingly shocked were the people who keep aquariums = ornamental fish at home, including Masuda of our CAO. "I'm seriously building coral reefs and the Amazon River at home." I was fascinated by their love for living things. I want to bring their energy, and above all, the splendor of the creatures they cherish, to the world using the technology I have acquired so far. At that moment I was convinced that I was born for that.
Innoqua started with such a simple idea of "I want to convey the charm of living things to the world." I run the company while placing the utmost importance on "I will do my best to deliver the splendor of nature more and more and have people respect nature."
By knowing the splendor of nature, we believe that people will be able to live a richer life and that humankind will develop further. At the same time, the idea of "taking care of nature" will grow in each and every one of us, and a better global environment will be built.
With love for living things and the power of technology, we will create a society where people and nature can truly coexist 100 years from now. I want to leave this beautiful earth in the future forever.
Innoqua has a balance of a wide range of parameters, including water quality (dissolved concentration of trace elements of 30 or more), water temperature, water flow, lighting environment, and the relationship between various organisms including microorganisms. "Near environment" is defined as an artificial ecosystem.
The figure above is the basic blueprint of our artificial ecosystem. Several types of corals, dozens of fish and shellfish, microorganisms and plankton are in a complex relationship of "eating / eating", "living / living", and confronting each other. In order to build an ecosystem that circulates without human intervention, it is necessary to adjust all of this balance and properly arrange various equipment. We implement this delicate and complex blueprint by fusing various technologies with the know-how of human beings who have built ecosystems as a hobby called aquarists.
Our aquarists can breed corals that are difficult to breed even for professionals. Furthermore, by utilizing a wide range of knowledge about equipment and living organisms, various organisms such as fish and echinoderms can be bred at the same time, and the circulation of the ecosystem in coral reefs can be reproduced.
In addition, we utilize various technologies to reproduce and support the high breeding techniques of aquarists. By making full use of IoT, we are developing technology to control the water temperature in units of 0.01 degrees, hardware that can feed food at an appropriate timing, and a water drone that can record living organisms in real time.
Aquarist x technology. We are the only company in the world that possesses both of these technologies. We will establish this artificial ecosystem technology and solve all problems for the coexistence of humans and nature.
