It is protected at our plant, and we have observed its blooming on the premises this year. Golden venus chubs are a member of the carp family distributed in western Honshu, northern Shikoku, and northwestern Kyushu. We are protect them at our plant, and approximately 150 venus chubs live in the `round pond` on our premises. We conduct periodic population surveys in June and October to monitor the situation and maintain the population.
