e decision-making model. But it also will include a variety of data accessible to fishermen, and information about fresh-caught individual salmon that will be available to consumers.
"Think about going into a seafood market in Portland, or in New York City, for that matter, and buying a salmon caught off Oregon, and tracking down the day it was caught, the location, and the river of origin," Sylvia said. "Then you can click on another link and read about the fishing vessel that caught the salmon, and the crew that works the boat.
"Some of the fishermen are as excited about the marketing potential of the research as they are with the management potential," he added.
The researchers hope to have the new website operational by late summer.
