Abstract or Summary
  • A random utility model of trip demand for steelhead fishing is constructed by using a logit regression technique and data from the 1990 Oregon Angler Survey, conducted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The model is formulated to estimate demand when only the regional destination is known. Results from the regression are used to calculate expected consumer's surplus for an additional steelhead caught by anglers in Oregon. Regional marginal values for an additional steelhead caught in Oregon range from $10.07 to $15.63. The value obtained for an additional steelhead in the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife southwest management zone is used to assess the value of a change in fish production related to management alternatives for tributaries of the Elk River in southwestern Oregon. There was an increase in fish production between the Forest Plan (USDA 1992) and Option 9 in FEMAT (1993), resulting in a present net value of $177,414 for the increase in fish production between the alternatives, under given assumptions of fish population growth and stability.
