Abstract or Summary
  • The main purpose of this study is to answer a question, "Are the Japanese Fisheries Responsible?" The author tries to find the answer by analyzing a historical trend of the Japanese fisheries policies, recent legislation such as "Fisheries Basic Law" and "Sustainable Aquaculture Production Assurance Law", and example cases of community-based fisheries management by a fisheries cooperatives in Japan, in accordance with the related Articles of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries (hereinafter referred as "the Code"). The result of the analysis indicates that the newly established fisheries legislation of Japan covers the main principles of the Code and that traditional Japanese coastal fisheries management is a typical example of responsible fisheries. The author then proposes "Ethics in Fisheries" including the concept of "Authentic Fisheries" as the essence of principles for responsible fisheries management based on analysis of the Code and the Japanese example cases. "Authentic Fisheries" is the ultimate and most idealistic shape of fisheries where fishers themselves are expected to manage their own fisheries based on trust and responsibility, in a transparent manner, with the delegation of authority for management of the fisheries. Notwithstanding, the government authorities are continuously expected to enforce fisheries laws and regulations but mostly on outsiders, such as IUU fishing operators.
