[HCG35-05] Trans-disciplinary Approach of Marine Protected Area Designation in Tsushima
Keywords:Marine Protected Area, Tsushima, oceanography
Information about various weather phenomena known for generations by local fishers and coastal residents (e.g. traditions, experience, wisdom, historical documents, local history) fused with scientific knowledge and the lastest technology can result in marine management methods well adapted to local conditions.
Surveys were conducted in Tsushima City (Nagasaki prefecture) and its adjoining seas, where marine protected area policy has been ongoing since 2010. As part of our consideration of “Collaborative oceanographic monitoring grounded in local knowledge,” We checked for correspondance between good fishing grounds (marine area known to be ecologically important by fishers) and physical oceanographic findings.
Transdisciplinary approach as 1)collaborative oceanography, 2)Fish ecology assisted by environmental DNA meta-barcoding, 3) Ocean GIS mapping of local knowledge and status of sea weed bed, 4)Meteorological disaster risk reduction of fishery. activities. Trans-disciplinary research is essential to link latent oceanogrhpic, ecological local knowledge to utilize in the process of MPA in changing climate situations.
