Following a landscape-scale approach to conservation, federal agencies that manage public lands and waters (and their commodity users) may shoulder a larger share of the conservation burden and may be held to a higher standard for protected species recovery.
Economic analysis is important in distributing the conservation burdens among the public and private landowners, but it must not be allowed to dictate the biological requisites of the recovery plan.
As a result, the composition of aggregate demand in a particular community is an important determinant of aggregate demand reduction and the distribution of conservation burden among household classes.
Figure 2 shows the reduction in aggregate demand and potential for uneven incidence of conservation burden associated with a uniform price increase from [P.
The composition of aggregate demand also may influence the reduction in demand and the distribution of conservation burden associated with non-price policies.
It influences both the total reduction in demand attributable to a specific policy instrument and the incidence of conservation burden among household classes.
Comments submitted by the tribes on the recovery team's earlier plan, however, indicated their strong view that the plan did not meet the agencies' trust responsibility toward the tribes, because it failed to establish adequate goals for restoration of the fish and it placed an undue emphasis on tribal harvest in allocating the conservation burden.
Accordingly, any trust paradigm in the realm of wildlife conservation must account for the equitable distribution of the conservation burden between tribes and the majority society.
Matters such as identifying the necessary degree of conservation, translating the conservation need into appropriate management actions, and distributing the conservation burden equitably between the tribes and the federal government are complicated by the scientific uncertainty inherent in wildlife management.
In other words, if long-term measures and institutional overhaul are required to realign the conservation burden, or recover the species to harvestable levels, agencies that by their nature are often predisposed to responding to short-term political concerns may seek to recharacterize their trust obligation to reflect and incorporate the political and practical pressures facing them.
The objectives of the new arrangements are to: -- Sustain wild stocks -- Prevent over-fishing -- Set a predictable framework for sharing the burden of conservation and benefits of stock recovery -- Provide cost-effective, responsive fishery management -- Establish a common basis for stock assessment, fishery monitoring, and performance evaluation New Fisheries Arrangements Our objectives under the new arrangements were to: -- Improve sharing of conservation burden -- Limit interceptions -- Respond to health of the stocks -- Incorporate harvest rate restriction for depressed stocks Fraser River Sockeye/Pink -- Increased Canadian share in catches over previous arrangements -- Stability for First Nations and greater certainty for the Canadian fishing industry -- Limit U.
