Abstract
  • Between 1996 and 2000, the Federal Government of Canada reduced the number of salmon fishing licences in British Columbia by 50%, from a total of 4416 to the current 2221 licences, through voluntary “licence retirement”. The total cost of this program was $273.5 million over 5 years. The purpose of this paper is to describe the program, its relationship to other capacity reduction initiatives, and the lessons learned from the resulting sizeable fleet reduction.
