Abstract

An examination of the costs and benefits of the Atlantic Salmon Restoration Program and their distribution leads to the conclusion that the current arrangement is neither equitable nor efficacious. It is proposed that it would be fairer and more effective for the government to assume responsibility for fish passages at existing dams, subject to PURPA. While this seems fairer, it may not be politically feasible.
