Despite their roles and importance in securing fisheries sustainability, Japanese small-scale fisheries face various challenges today, including unstable fishing household income, aging populations, lack of successors, losing community vitalities, etc. In addition to those challenges, a recent policy change that enables private capitals to enter into coastal fisheries has caused great concerns to the situation. We argue the Umigyo strategy is an effective and essential way to cope with these challenges in such a new era. Umigyo is a series of economic activities carried out by community people centred on fishers and fishers’ organizations utilizing fishery resources and all kinds of community resources, including landscapes, sceneries, cultures, heritage, etc. This session explores the Umigyo theory and practices to secure life above water and below the water. After two introductory talks and five short presentations on best practices with keywords of Stay, Play, Buy, Eat, Learn, a panel dialogue with fishers will follow.
