Table 2. Management practices that degrade or enhance salmon and fishery resilience.


Anti-resilience management practices Pro-resilience management practices
Allowing small populations to go extinct Protecting and conserving small populations
Reducing life-history variation by targeting and enhancing the dominant tactic Enhancing variation to sustain and increase life-history diversity
Domestication and genetic swamping Allowing surplus escapement
Managing for maximum yield Fishing to sustain diversity
Encouraging big boats and big gear Encouraging smaller, targeted fisheries
Permitting incremental loss or degradation of habitat Maintaining habitat quality and diversity
Managing for economic efficiency Managing for community and cultural resilience
