Blasiak, R., C. Durussel, J. Pittman, C-A. Senit, M. Petersson, N. Yagi. 2017. The role of NGOs in negotiating the use of biodiversity in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction. Marine Policy 81: 1-8
In 2004, the UN General Assembly resolved to establish a working group to consider issues pertaining to the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ). The group met nine times between 2006 and 2015 before concluding its mandate by recommending the development of an international legally binding instrument on BBNJ under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Se...

Official development assistance (ODA) is intended to spur progress and increase security among recipient countries. Billions in ODA have been allocated to fisheries to support nutrition and livelihoods worldwide. Yet, from 2010 to 2015, fisheries allocations decreased by>30%, while grants for non-fisheries sectors increased by>13%. Globally, grants for climate change adaptation and mitigation fell for fisheries, while rapid...
Blasiak. R., Huang, J, H-W., Ishihara, H., et. al. 2017. Promoting diversity and inclusiveness in seafood certification and ecolabelling: Prospects for Asia. Marine Policy Volume 85, November 2017, Pages 42-47, DOI: 10.1016/j.marpol.2017.08.011
Building on the inputs by a range of experts who participated in the February 2017 international symposium on “Designing the Future for Fisheries Certification Schemes” at the University of Tokyo, this manuscript traces the origins of fisheries certification schemes, relevant developments, and remaining challenges from an Asian perspective. Over the past 20 years, seafood certification has emerged as a powerful tool for meetin...
Lu, Y-H., Yagi, N., Blasiak, R. 2017. Factors contributing to effective management in the Sakuraebi (Sergia lucens) fishery of Donggang, Taiwan. Marine Policy Volume 86, December 2017, Pages 72–81 DOI: 10.1016/j.marpol.2017.09.004
An in-depth assessment was conducted on the functioning of a Taiwanese Sakuraebi (Sergia lucens) fishery management institution to understand the role of leadership in the context of long-term incentive creation. Interviews with relevant stakeholders and statistical analysis of fisheries data indicated that the daily vessel quota system and fishers’ collective efforts to influence the market resulted in increased sales value, ...
Blasiak R, Spijkers J, Tokunaga K, Pittman J, Yagi N, Österblom H. 2017. Climate change and marine fisheries: Least developed countries top global index of vulnerability. PLoS ONE 12(6): e0179632. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0179632
Future impacts of climate change on marine fisheries have the potential to negatively influence a wide range of socio-economic factors, including food security, livelihoods and public health, and even to reshape development trajectories and spark transboundary conflict. Yet there is considerable variability in the vulnerability of countries around the world to these effects. We calculate a vulnerability index of 147 countries...
