Crona, B., Wassénius, E., Lillepold, K., Watson, R., Selig, E., Hicks, C., Österblom, H., Folke, C., Jouffray, J., Blasiak, R.. 2021. Sharing the seas: a review and analysis of ocean sector interactions. Environmental Research Letters. http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/ac02ed
Ocean activities are rapidly expanding as Blue Economy discussions gain traction, creating new potential synergies and conflicts between sectors. To better manage ocean sectors and their development, we need to understand how they interact and the respective outcomes of these interactions. To provide a first comprehensive picture of the situation, we review 3187 articles to map and analyze interactions between economically im...
Blasiak, R., Dauriach, A., Jouffray, J., Folke, C., Österblom, H., Bebbington, J., Bengtsson, F., Causevic, A., Geerts, B., Grønbrekk, W., Henriksson, P., Käll, S., Leadbitter, D., McBain, D., Crespo, G., Packer, H., Sakaguchi, I., Schultz, L., Selig, E., Troell, M., Villalón, J., Wabnitz, C., Wassénius, E., Watson, R., Yagi, N., Crona, B.. 2021. Evolving Perspectives of Stewardship in the Seafood Industry. Frontiers in Marine Science. http://dx.doi.org/10.3389/fmars.2021.671837
Humanity has never benefited more from the ocean as a source of food, livelihoods, and well-being, yet on a global scale this has been accompanied by trajectories of degradation and persistent inequity. Awareness of this has spurred policymakers to develop an expanding network of ocean governance instruments, catalyzed civil society pressure on the public and private sector, and motivated engagement by the general public as co...
Sigwart, J.D., Blasiak, R., Jaspars, M., Jouffray, J-D., Tasdemir, D., 2021. Unlocking the potential of marine biodiscovery. Nat. Prod. Rep., 2021, Advance Article, https://doi.org/10.1039/D0NP00067A
The tremendous diversity of life in the ocean has proven to be a rich source of inspiration for drug discovery, with success rates for marine natural products up to 4 times higher than other naturally derived compounds. Yet the marine biodiscovery pipeline is characterized by chronic underfunding, bottlenecks and, ultimately, untapped potential. For instance, a lack of taxonomic capacity means that, on average, 20 years pass ...
Virdin, J., Vegh, T., Jouffray, J-B., Blasiak, R., Mason, S., Österblom, H., Vermeer, D., Watchmeister, H., Werner, N. 2021. The Ocean 100: Transnational corporations in the ocean economy. Science Advances 13 Jan 2021. Vol. 7, no. 3, eabc8041, DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.abc8041
The ocean economy is growing as commercial use of the ocean accelerates, while progress toward achieving international goals for ocean conservation and sustainability is lagging. In this context, the private sector is increasingly recognized as having the capacity to hamper efforts to achieve aspirations of sustainable ocean-based development or alternatively to bend current trajectories of ocean use by taking on the mantle of...

Österblom, H., Cvitanovic, C., van Putten, I., Addison, P., Blasiak, R., Jouffray, J.B., Bebbington, J., Hall, J., Ison, S., LeBris, A. and Mynott, S., 2020. Science-Industry Collaboration: Sideways or Highways to Ocean Sustainability?. One Earth, 3(1), pp.79-88.
There is substantial and unexplored potential for scientists to engage with the private sector for a sustainable ocean. The importance of such cooperation is a frequent emphasis of international dialogues and statements, it is embedded within the Sustainable Development Goals, and has been championed by prominent business leaders and scientists. But an uncritical embrace of science-industry collaboration is unhelpful, and cand...
Ford, A.K., Jouffray, J-B., Norström, A.V., Moore, B.R., et.al. 2020. Local Human Impacts Disrupt Relationships Between Benthic Reef Assemblages and Environmental Predictors. Front. Mar. Sci., 21 October 2020 | https://doi.org/10.3389/fmars.2020.571115
Human activities are changing ecosystems at an unprecedented rate, yet large-scale studies into how local human impacts alter natural systems and interact with other aspects of global change are still lacking. Here we provide empirical evidence that local human impacts fundamentally alter relationships between ecological communities and environmental drivers. Using tropical coral reefs as a study system, we investigated the in...
Folke, C., Österblom, H., Jouffray, J-B., Lambin, E.F., et.al. 2020. An invitation for more research on transnational corporations and the biosphere. Nat Ecol Evol 4, 494, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41559-020-1145-2
We welcome the interest in our work on transnational corporations (TNCs) and biosphere stewardship. TNCs have rarely been linked to ecosystem dynamics, and even less so considered suitable partners for knowledge co-production in sustainability research. How TNCs shape the intertwined nature of people and planet therefore represents a timely and critical topic and the Correspondence articles by Schneider et al. and Etzion offer...
Jouffray, J-N., Blasiak, R., Norström, A., Österblom, H., Nyström, H. 2020. The Blue Acceleration: The Trajectory of Human Expansion into the Ocean. One Earth, Perspective, Vol. 2, Issue 1, p. 43-54. DOI: /10.1016/j.oneear.2019.12.016
Does humanity's future lie in the ocean? As demand for resources continues to grow and land-based sources decline, expectations for the ocean as an engine of human development are increasing. Claiming marine resources and space is not new to humanity, but the extent, intensity, and diversity of today's aspirations are unprecedented. We describe this as the blue acceleration—a race among diverse and often competing interests f...

The purpose of this paper is to interrogate the nature and relevance of debates around the existence of, and ramifications arising from, the Anthropocene for accounting scholarship. The paper’s aim is achieved through an in-depth analysis of the Anthropocene, paying attention to cross-disciplinary contributions, interpretations and contestations. Possible points of connection between the Anthropocene and accounting scholarshi...
