Opportunity for Marine Fisheries Reform in China

A joint study by marine fisheries experts from within and outside of China concluded that the country’s most recent fisheries conservation plan can achieve a true paradigm shift in marine fisheries management – but only if the Chinese government embraces major institutional reform.

The researchers, led by Stanford University’s Ling Cao and Rosamond Naylor, published their perspective piece “Opportunity for Marine Fisheries Reform in China,” in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) of the United States of America.

The Packard Foundation’s China Marine Strategy provided funding to support this research and provides the full paper here, with permission from PNAS.
