Research and development strategy of fisheries technology innovation for sustainable fishery resource management in North East Asia.

The development of fisheries technology supports food sustainability to achieve a steady supply of fish and fishery products. However, the priorities for research and development (R&D) in fisheries technologies vary by region due to differences in fish resource availability, environmental concerns, and consumer preferences for fishery products. This study examines trends in fisheries technology innovations using data on patents granted as an indicator of changing R&D priorities. To clarify changes in R&D priorities, we apply a decomposition analysis framework that classifies fisheries technology into three types: harvesting, aquaculture, and new products. This study mainly focuses on the China, Japan, and Korea as the major fishing countries in northeast Asia region. The results show that the number of fisheries technology patents granted increased between 1993 and 2015; in particular, the number of aquaculture patents granted has grown rapidly since 2012. However, the trend in Japan was opposite, as the apparent priority given to aquaculture technology innovation decreased between 1993 and 2015. The trends and priority changes for fisheries technology inventions vary by country and technology group. This implies that an international policy framework for fishery technology development should recognize that R&D priorities need to reflect diverse characteristics across countries and the technologies employed.
