2. Research experience

Prof. Tang is one of the international leading scientists on both marine ecosystem and living resources sustainable utilization. He has served on over 20 scientific organizations, including the core member of GEF--STAP(Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel), vice Chairmen of China Association for Science and Technology, President of the Chinese Fisheries Society, member of the incipient IOC-IUCN-NOAA Consultative Committee on LMEs, member of the incipient Scientific Steering Committee of GLOBEC/IGBP, Consultative expert of National Natural Science Foundation of China, member of the Science Board of the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES) and Chairman of the Fishery Science Committee of PICES.

He participated in the formulation of both the LMEs, an action for a new global ocean management concept, and GLOBEC, a leading science program on ocean ecosystem studies. He is the chief scientist of two national research projects (1999-2004 and 2006-2010) of the Chinese National Key Basic Research Program. In both these projects, scientists in physical oceanography, chemic oceanography, biologic oceanography and fishery oceanography are involved. Because of the success of the 1999-2004 research project, Prof. Tang has been invited to serve again on the Scientific Steering Committee of the GLOBEC/IGBP, after serving the committee in its incipient stage in middle 90’s. In addition to basic researches, Prof. Tang has applied his research findings to carrying capacity in aquaculture, fish-stock enhancement, as well as new concepts in fisheries management and sustainable mariculture. He is the chief scientist on the project of “Investigation and evaluation on marine living resources and inhabiting environment in the Chinese EEZ and continental shelves”.

He has authored about 200 research papers and authored/edited 18 books. Prof. Tang’s research projects have received 4 national scientific & technological prizes and 6 ministry/province level prizes. For his work, Prof. Tang has been recognized as the National Outstanding Contribution Expert and Distinguished Technology Specialized Talent, awarded the Prize of Earth Science for Scientific and Technological Progress of Ho-Leung-Ho-Lee (HLHL) Foundation, awarded Top Science & Technology Prize of Shandong Province, and received 10 other honorary titles.
