The art of pearl culture, as initially developed by late Kokichi Mikimoto in 1893 and subsequently improved upon by the Japanese scientists and farmers is in the process of undergoing changes with scientific inputs in new areas. While the traditional pearl culture industry of Japan is looking for improvement in the quality of cultured pearls, several new entrants are coming into the industry. In some areas, there is also interest in reviving the natural populations and improving their pearl producing potential.
