Life in Mohri Garden

Outer-space fish

On July 25, 2003, astronaut Mouri Mori and about 800 foster parents, the Medaka Research Committee of the Universe, released about 10,000 universe medaka in Mouri pond. Space medaka was proffered by Dr. Kenichi Ijiri of the University of Tokyo in 1994 and is an experiment conducted by Chiaki Mukai and others within the Space Shuttle "Colombia", they are descendants of medaka, which was first born in space in the vertebrate.

It is forbidden to release Space Medaka to ordinary rivers or to cross wild medaka. In that respect, this Mohri pond is not connected to the external river, so the release of the universe medaka was possible.
