Katy Seto’s research centers on coupled human and natural systems dynamics in marine and coastal systems. Her primary areas of focus are 1) the contribution of marine resources to food and livelihood security, 2) governing marine and coastal systems for resource equity and sustainability, and 2) maritime security and globalization in a context of rapid global change. Her work investigates the equity, sustainability, and governance of marine and coastal systems, and the reciprocal relationship they have with human wellbeing and conflict.

Nereus Fellow Katy Seto attended a workshop on October 22-24th in Yokohama, Japan about emerging remote sensing technologies that highlight fishing activities in the Pacific and around the globe. The meetings continued to develop a research collaboration between the University of Wollongong’s ANCORS with Global Fishing Watch (GFW) and Japanese Fisheries Research and Education Agency (FRA).

Chinese Fishing Boats Took Half a Billion Dollars of Illegal Squid from North Korea. Scientists Used Satellites to Catch Them Out.
Nereus Network members Katherine Seto and Quentin Hanich co-authored a new ground-breaking study “Illuminating dark fishing fleets in North Korea”, shedding light on illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing by Chinese fleets.
