Framework for assessing the socioeconomics of food, social, and ceremonial salmon harvests

This project will develop a research framework to assess the scope, qualitative value, and traditional practices used in food, social, and ceremonial fisheries throughout the region covered by the Pacific Salmon Treaty. In this year 1 of 2, the proponents will identify target audiences, develop and test appropriate questionnaires and interview formats, identify key points of contact, create an implementation plan, and otherwise prepare for extensive outreach and analysis in year 2 of 2. Target audiences for the final research output include legislators, appropriators, Native youth leaders, and the general public.
