Description 

Objective:

To use salmon stock research to create a sustainable tourism management plan for the Great Northern Peninsula.

If the quantity of fish stocks in these rivers could be determined, this information could be used to create a management approach that allows for the use of tourism chalets or fishing lodges that allows fishing in a sustainable manner.

Roles for Memorial University:

Research fish stocks and assist with a management plan that determine sustainable fishing activities and practices.
