This area features fishing boats along the coast of Odong Island, aquaculture farms and a "marine forest" and the changes in the fishing methods of Koreans over the years.

The aim is to open the viewer's eyes to the need for resource management.
The exhibits are located outdoors to provide greater freedom of viewing, you can pull a net just like those used in fish farms, harvesting oysters, clams and abalone.

The "marine forest", the size of half a basketball court, is a seaweed farming area where tiny tropical fish swim.

1,000 spectators can be accommodated every 30 minutes.
