It is thus no exaggeration to say that the fate of many, if not most, marine ecosystems will turn on China's behaviour. This seminar will trace the rise of China in fishing, seafood production and consumption, and measure its dimensions against leading competitors. The economic, social and policy drivers behind these trends will be explored, as will the prospects for domestic and international pressures to shape China's conduct toward responsible development and sustainable use.
