Economic analysis in support of protected species management

The Endangered Species Act requires that recovery plans for listed species include estimates of the cost of implementing the plans. Given the importance of habitat restoration to recovery of ESA-listed salmonids, the Fisheries Economics Team’s ESA-related work focuses largely on habitat restoration costs and related models.

Economic analysis in support of fishery management

Effective fishery management requires a sound understanding of how fishing behavior is affected by biological, regulatory and market factors. The Fisheries Economics Team’s efforts in this regard include analyses of existing fishery data, as well as analyses of original data collected by the Team.
