Japan

In 2007, Japan amended its Basic Fishery Plan, originally established in 2002, in order to take into account changes in Japanese fisheries and food supply. Under the broad guideline of the Basic Plan, Japan has developed and implemented resource recovery plans on various species and fishing types. The number of resource recovery plans has increased rapidly in recent years. As of February 2008, 51 plans have been established or under development.
