Abstract: After briefly reviewing the history of the Yellow Sea fishery management and comparing it with the development status of fishery management in other regions, this paper points out the necessity for using the great Marine Ecosystem strategy as a means to advance the fishery management from single-species and multi-species resource management towards integrated and scientific management. Further more, on the basis of the relevant contents of the" Action Plan for the Yellow Sea Great Marine Ecosystem Monitoring and Protection" submitted to UNDP and the World Bank by the State Oceanic Administration of China, an adaptive management strategy is proposed for the Yellow Sea. It includes:(a) Seeking out the problems to be solved according to the analysis of available data; (b) Selecting the appropriate space; (c) Ascertaining the specific contents of research; (d) Acquiring the adaptive management strategies from the research findings; (e) Implementation of the strategies through transnational cooperation; (f) Evaluation of the implementation results through feedback loop.

Key words: Yellow Sea fishery, great marine ecosystem, resource management
