Fish are an important part of both the health and economy of North Korea. Pyongyang has for years encouraged its citizens to fish more — even likening it to military duty.

While an important source of protein, fish are seen as a luxury food, driving complex interactions between local communities, fish themselves, wider ecosystems and the politics of Pyongyang.

In this seminar Dr Robert Winstanley-Chesters (East Asian Studies, University of Leeds) and Dr Benjamin Habib ( Politics and International Relations, La Trobe University) examine the history and geographies of fishing in North Korea, its effects on the country, and how it plays into East Asian politics.
