Economic importance of wild Atlantic salmon revealed

From the Atlantic Salmon Federation:

In a study released this week, Gardner-Pinfold Consulting Economists Ltd. concludes that wild Atlantic salmon were worth $255 million to the Canadian economy and supported 3,872 full time equivalent jobs in 2010.

This landmark natural resource study provides accurate and current data for advocates and policy makers. It combines the value that comes from active use of the resource, such as recreational fishing, and the public investment potential and level of public support for a long-term conservation program.

Read more about this study, including background, and access the study itself.
