Seaweed farmers prepare seaweed for shipment in their newly built workplace in Minamisanriku town, in Miyagi prefecture, northeastern Japan February 23, 2012. Traditionally farming has been carried out in family units, however after the tsunami the farmers of Minamisanriku created a guild to combine their businesses. They decided to collaborate since there was no way to restart their business individually. Picture taken February 23, 2012. REUTERS/Yuriko Nakao(JAPAN - Tags: ANNIVERSARY DISASTER ENVIRONMENT)
