Summary

Members of the local Okinawa community pulls hijiki from the ocean during the Hijiki Harvest at Camp Courtney, Okinawa, Japan, Feb. 22, 2020. Because the base is the main location on the island where hijiki grows, U.S. and Japanese officials work together to protect it from being overharvested by harvesting only once a year. Hijiki is a type of seaweed that plays an important part of Okinawan culture and is used in many Japanese cuisines. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Kayla V. Staten)
