Principles for the conservation of wild living resources

Abstract We describe broadly applicable principles for the conservation of wild living resources and mechanisms for their implementation. These principles were engendered from three starting points. First, a set of principles for the conservation of wild living resources (Holt and Talbot 1978) required reexamination and updating. Second, those principles lacked mechanisms for implementation and consequently […]

Participants in the three-day workshop examined the factors associated with […]

Even a ban on fishing a particular stock or species will not enable the recovery of a severely weakened population in many […]


An evaluation of the effects of conservation and fishery enhancement hatcheries on wild populations of salmon

Abstract The historical, political and scientific aspects of salmon hatchery programmes designed to enhance fishery production, or to recover endangered populations, are reviewed. We start by pointing out that the establishment of hatcheries has been a political response to societal demands for harvest and conservation; given this social context, we then critically examined the levels […]
