Post-Tsunami Ecological Destruction and Restoration of Japanese Coastal Ecosystems
Japanese coastal communities are deeply connected to the sea as a source of life. Devastation of marine ecosystems off the Eastern coast of Japan after the March 2011 tsunami, therefore, has resulted in the destruction of both native marine organism populations and the communities dependent on them. Inshore diversity on the Eastern coast of Japan includes a wide variety of protected seabirds such as the albatross, as well as widely harvested marine food crops such as the abalone. In fact,the Pacific waters off the Eastern coast of Japan are some of the most vibrant fishing grounds in the world. After the 2011 tsunami, these marine ecosystems and their ecosystem services were threatened by prolonged population decline and lack of productivity. This collection focuses on the complexly interconnected ecosystems that make up the Eastern Japan coastline, and how they were impacted by the tsunami. In turn, it looks at how natural disasters not only harm the Japanese people directly , but indirectly as they destroy vital resources. Finally, when looking at the negative impacts that the 2011 tsunami had on ecosystems in Japan, we must also consider the ecological impact on coastal communities stretching across the Pacific.
