Abstract: 

The authors introduce a fierce controversy between large-scale tidal barrage power and the local efforts toward preserving wetlands and fisheries in Incheon, South Korea. Due to the controversy on socioeconomic and environmental concerns, the plans for the Incheon Bay and Ganghwa tidal power plants were halted in 2012.
