• Challenges and Strategies for the Alaska Salmon Industry

      Knapp, Gunnar (Institute of Social and Economic Research, University of Alaska., 2001)
      Alaska salmon industry is facing many different challenges. The problem is not just competition from farmed salmon. Other challenges include variable and uncertain salmon runs, overproduction for traditional canned salmon markets, changes in consumer demand, and the current world economic slowdown - to name just a few.... Experience - from Alaska and elsewhere - shows that it is important to be very careful in establishing rights-based management systems....The issues are complex.
