MILJØ2015-Norsk miljøforskning mot 2015

VANN: Quotas as a management approach for sustainable harvesting of Atlantic salmon populations in rivers and bag-net fisheries in Norway.

Management of Atlantic salmon is moving towards using management targets (numbers of females left to spawn) as a tool for obtaining sustainable harvest and viable populations. To obtain the desired number of spawners, fishing pressure has to be determined before the start of the season. To use t...
