2. Most Significant Career Research Contributions

1. As a member of the Shiretoko World Natural Heritage Scientific Committee, I summarized the international feature of the fisheries management system in Japan and necessary policy measures for expanding it to the ecosystem-based management. The results were published by academic journal articles. The official report from the Japanese Government to UNESCO included my journal articles as the supplemental material. When the UNESCO-IUCN on-sight evaluation mission visited the Shiretoko area, I explained local fisheries and its management system to the mission members.

2. As the chair of the Study Group on Human Dimensions in the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), I organized an international research team in 2009, which was mainly composed by social scientists from Canada, China, Korea, Japan, Russia, and USA. This group surveyed the roles of social sciences in the ecosystem-based management, and compiled the case studies in six countries. The report of the Study Group will be published by PICES Scientific Report in 2011.

 3. As the member of IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management (CEM) Fisheries Expert Group (FEG), I hosted gIUCN FEG Workshop on Selective Fisheriesh in October, 2010 at Nagoya, Japan. The main results of the workshop were presented at the IUCNfs side event of the Convention on Biological Diversity COP10 held in October at Nagoya, and at the European Parliament in December. Also, the final report of the workshop will be published from IUCN in February 2011.

4. As the member of IMBER (Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research) Human-Dimension Working Group, which was organized in 2010, I am participating to the discussions on the roles and future directions of social sciences in order to adapt to the global environmental changes.


3. Contributions to Training

Our institute does not have any student. But, as the part-time lecturer, I have under-graduate and post-graduate classes on gfisheries management policyh in Hokkaido University, Tokyo University of Agriculture, Nagasaki University, and Yokohama National University.
