Walking through the aisles of a Japanese supermarket, it is uncommon to see sustainable seafood certification labels. Why is this? Because there is a severe public governance deficit in the management of fisheries and aquaculture. In Japan, public regulation is dysfunctional. But there is hope. Private certification schemes (similar to Seafood Watch) have begun to play a central role in promoting sustainable fisheries and aquaculture through an enlightened market. Recently, the largest supermarket company in Japan announced a new p… Event Name: The Dawn of Sustainable Seafood in Japan. Organization: GSIPM.
