Abstract: In the Shiretoko World Natural Heritage area, many factors have been observed that imply the effects of climate change on the ecosystems, such as decreases in seasonal sea ice, changes of fishing grounds, appearance of non local species, etc. This study summarizes the observed and anticipated effects of such climate change on the fisheries in the heritage area, and discusses policy and research needs for adapting to these changes. International research and monitoring, at the large marine ecosystems (LME) scale, is the basis of all policy measures for adaptation to climate change. A variety of measures should be combined, taking into account various socioecological aspects of fisheries, and various scales of ecosystems. Such measures of adaptation should be incorporated into the cross sector coordination system, and the Integrated Management Plan, which were newly established for the management of the World Heritage area. Also, we point out that culture is an important part of society, and the World Heritage Program may offer clues for creating a new peaceful culture based on the LME.
