Forum Report: Sato-Umi in the Anthropocene

Report of a forum co-sponsored by the Aquarium of the Pacific and American Honda in partnership with the Honda Marine Science Foundation

On November 13-14, 2017, the Aquarium of the Pacific and the Honda Marine Science Foundation convened and facilitated a forum on “Sato-umi in the Anthropocene.” The forum was designed to explore a number of approaches to “integrated” coastal management, in particular those that cross the land-sea boundary, some of which have been practiced for thousands of years, to see if lessons could be extracted to elevate awareness and stimulate action to reduce vulnerability in the “new normal” of rising sea level.
