This report presents the results of the GIWA assessment of the Oyashio Current region – one of the most productive waters in East Asia. Changes in the hydrological cycle and ocean circulation have affected the productivity of the fisheries whilst overfishing has depleted commercial fish stocks. The past and present status and future prospects are assessed, and the prioritised issues traced back to their root causes. Policy recommendations are presented as contributions to broader policy processes in the region.
