Final Report: Recreational Fisheries Management Exchange

This two-part exchange was intended to enable leaders in the Russian Far East’s regional fisheries management agencies to benefit from the expertise of North American fisheries managers in devising ecologically, socially, and financially responsible strategies to handle recreational angling demand.

This exchange draws from the Wild Salmon Center’s mission: The mission of the Wild Salmon Center is to identify, understand and protect the best wild salmon ecosystems of the Pacific Rim. We devise and implement practical strategies, based on the best science, to protect forever these extraordinary places and their biodiversity.

We have identified recreational angling tourism as a practical, economically viable and ecologically sustainable strategy for Russian regions with salmon populations to derive benefits from their fishery resources, while supporting science and conservation goals.
