For the week of 18 September 2017
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
PNAS has published, Benefits and risks of diversification for individual fishers. "Here, we evaluate two axes by which fishers in Alaska can diversify fishing activities. [...] Our results demonstrate that the most effective option for individuals to decrease revenue variability is to participate in additional or more diverse fisheries. However, this option is expensive, often limited by regulations such as catch share programs, and consequently unavailable to many individuals."
As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let us know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email Allie directly at abrown [at] openchannels.org.
