Social and Economic Values

The wild Atlantic salmon has many aspects to its value. In addition to the values associated with the fisheries (recreational, commercial and subsistence) and to fishery-related businesses, there are other values associated with the salmon itself. It is highly prized by society in general and is an indicator of environmental quality. These values are infrequently assessed, but may greatly exceed the values associated with the fisheries.
