Molluscs in Tanoura

The land reclamation that would take place as part of Chugoku Electric Company's proposal would be in Tanoura, a cove on the south side of Nagashima Island. This cove has a particularly rich fauna especially of molluscs. A study in 1999 found 183 species, 144 genera and 81 families in Tanoura. Of these, some are thought to be endemic to this location, such as Ceratia Nagashima, and eight species are on WWF Japan's Red List cited as "rare" or "vulnerable".
