Welcome to "Kirk's Take"

In this column – at least monthly, but sometimes more frequently – I cover one marine-related topic in some depth as well as present news and information on matters related to Japan's oceans and marine tourism. I also provide updates on Konpira Consulting's services, operations, and staff.

Feel free to contact me if you have questions or comments on anything in "Kirk's Take" or want to suggest a topic for me to cover in a future issue.

Thanks for reading!
