Main Conference Rooms (MCRs) World Resources Institute 10 G Street, NE (8th Floor) Washington, DC 20002
This talk, by Professor Micah Muscolino, explores interactions between society and environment in China’s most important marine fishery, the Zhoushan Archipelago, from its 19th century expansion to the exhaustion of its most important fish species in the 1970s.
- What institutions did private and state actors use to regulate and control fishery resources?
- How did relationships between social organizations and the state change over time?
- Which types of problems could these arrangements solve and which not?
- What does the fate of these institutions tell us about environmental change in late imperial and modern China?
Answering these questions gives us a better understanding of the relationship between past ecological changes and present environmental challenges.
