Abstract or Summary
  • The paper explores to what extent escaped farmed salmon from fish farms affect the willingness-to-pay for recreational fishing of Atlantic salmon in Norwegian rivers. The aim is to quantify the potential externality from escaped farmed species working through the demand for the natural stock of congeners. While the biological and genetic effects of escaped farmed salmon have been widely acknowledged, the potential economic consequences have received little attention. This study is a first attempt to close this gap by analysing the direct effect on the recreational use values. The empirical analysis is based on the results from a contingent valuation survey conducted in Norway. It is found that the presence of escaped farmed salmon in Norwegian rivers may have severe economic consequences on the willingness-to-pay for recreational fishing.
