12th Conference of the Salmon Science Society with a Special Session: Debate on Diverse Aspects of Salmon


The recent decreasing trend of chum salmon catches has been affecting the status of salmon as a fisheries resource in Japan. In addition to intensive research and activities for the sustainable management of fisheries resources, it becomes increasing important to consider the scarcity values of salmon from various aspects such as culture, education, and third industries.

The International Year of the Salmon (IYS) will launch in 2019, a year to review how humans be involved with salmon in a changing climate. Even in Japan, we need to well understand sustainable relationships between salmonids and humans. The purpose of this special session is to provide an opportunity for practical consideration on the diverse values of salmon and their possible contributions to local communities in northern Japan.

Coordinators: Kazushi Miyashita, Hitoshi Araki, and Masaki Ichimura
