Integrated Coastal Management in the Japanese Satoumi: Restoring Estuaries and Bays provides an in-depth exploration of the integrated costal management (ICM) used in the Japanese Satoumi. The lessons of Satoumi―coastal areas where biological productivity and biodiversity have increased through human interaction―are important for the rest of the world, given the political consensus reached in Japan to truly restore estuaries and bays. The book will discuss and explain how this method could be modified to apply to other cultures in the world.

Integrated Coastal Management in the Japanese Satoumi: Restoring Estuaries and Bays presents chapters from experts in the relevant fields and includes chapters about each study field of the Satoumi, making it a valuable resource for researchers, field practitioners, and policymakers in coastal area management and development. This includes the Shizukawa Bay as an open coastal sea, the Seto Inland Sea as semi-enclosed coastal sea, and the Japan Sea. The book moves on to explore the economic evaluation of ecosystem services, a four-step management system, and the negotiation between marine protected areas and fisheries, and concludes with a full section covering a comparison of ICM with Europe and the United States, and how Japan’s policies could be integrated.

Key Features

  • Introduces a four-step system of local, regional, national and international management for successfully Integrated Coastal Management that can be deployed globally
  • Presents a new concept for ICM which worked on the Satoumi
  • Includes both Ecosystems Based Management (EBM) and Community Based Management (CBM)
  • Proposes a common platform for ICM, clarifying the scientific topics involved and their significance regarding the environment


Researchers, field practitioners, and policy/decision makers in coastal area management and development; ecologists and general environmental policy professionals. Nonacademic practitioners, such as policy makers and nongovernmental organizations

Dr. Tetsuo Yanagi received his B.S., M.S., and PhD in Science from Kyoto University. In 1974 he was a Research Associate in the department of ocean engineering at Ehime University and worked his way up to associate professor. In 1990 He became a professor of coastal engineering in the department of civil and ocean engineering at Ehime University. Eight years later, He transferred to the Research Institute for Applied Mechanics (RIAM) at the Kyushu University. In 2008 He became the Director of the Research Institute for Applied Mechanics at Kyushu University and retired in 2013. He was awarded the Prize of Japan-France Oceanographic Society in 1986 and the Prize of Good Book in Ehime Prefecture in 1989. He was also a SAP member if IGBP/START/SARCS from 1993 to 1997 and an SSC member of IGBP/LOICZ from 1993 to 1998. He has published "Coastal Oceanography" with Kluwer Academic Publishers in 1999 and "Sato-Umi: A new concept for sea management" in 2007 with TERRAPUB, Tokyo, “Japanese Commons in the Coastal Sea” in 2012 with Springer and “Eutrophication and Oligotrophication in Japanese Estuary” in 2015 with Springer.
