The Yellow Sea Ecoregion Support Project (YSESP) is a project that aims at conserving the diversity of life in the Yellow Sea Ecoregion and its sustainable development, through cooperation between China, Korea and Japan. With financial support from Panasonic Corporation, the Project is being implemented in a 7-year plan from 2007 to 2014. The second stage of this project was launched in each place in China and Korea in early 2010.

In China, stakeholders started working together on the Yalu River Coastal Area Ecosystem Based Management Demonstration Project. This project has started in collaboration with the divisions concerned in the local government (ocean and fisheries, environmental divisions, government affiliated research institute).

In Korea, the "Regional Development Orientated Coastal Area Management Demonstratoin Project" in Muan County of Korea's South Jeolla Province. Particularly notable is that local communities will participate in the project and play an active role in taking actions for management and sustainable use.

The second stage of this project will be carried out over approximately three years from January 2010 through to March 2013. Surveys at the demonstration sites are expected to produce scientific data that help analyze the ecological linkages of the coastal ecosystem, especially between the fishery, migratory birds and benthic community including fishery resources in the coastal area, eventually aiming at a stage where necessary measures for sustainable use and conservation of the environment can be achieved.
