Keith Criddle, Professor

Travel Report, Yokohama, Japan
June 24-26, 2010

Dr. Keith Criddle travelled to Yokohama, Japan, from June 24-26, 2010, to participate in a meeting of the PICES Study Group on Human Dimensions. The Study Group was formed to: review how social science has been used/applied globally and regionally in Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management and the theoretical basis for these practices; review the social scientific tools and information available for EBFM in PICES member countries; develop an inventory of practices for use of social economic information appropriate to the circumstances in each of PICES member countries; and prepare a final report on activities and findings of the group and make recommendations on the desirability of establishing an expert group related to socio-economic sciences within PICES and on the role of such group. The meeting was held in downtown Yokohama and included representatives of Canada, China, Japan, Russia, and the United States.

Dr. Criddle made presentations on "Human dimensions and ecosystem-based management of living marine resources off Alaska" and the "Economics and bioeconomics of sustainable ecosystem based management of living marine resources". The study group report will be finalized for presentation at the annual PICES meeting in October.
