Better Salmon Management in the Pacific Northwest by Combining Technical and Institutional Innovations
AbstractThe restoration of depleted wild salmon stocks in the Northwestern U.S. could be advancede with the re-introduction of in- river fixed gear tehcniques such as fishwheels, which offer substantial eocnomic, biological, and stock assessment advantages. A dynamic simulation model is used to demonstrate that fishwheels could reduce costs and increase net economic benefits to commercial fishers by a factor of five.
