Lessons About Global Ocean Governance From China's Fisheries Policy

Speaker: Tabitha Grace Mallory, affiliate faculty member of the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington

Governing the ocean commons is a significant challenge in managing China’s rise. China’s global search for resources such as fisheries and seabed minerals raises questions of sustainability and fair distribution of resources. Moreover, China’s highly subsidized global fishing fleet—the largest in the world—increasingly acts to advance China’s geopolitical goals. With the recent passage of the Maritime Fisheries and Security Enforcement (SAFE) Act, addressing illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is now a greater priority in U.S. foreign policy. How should U.S. policy on this issue move forward in the new administration, and more generally how should the global community think about China’s increasing presence in our oceans?
