Description

This analysis provides economic Impact analyses for Stikine, Taku, and Unuk River watersheds of Southeast Alaska, which begin in Canada and empty off the U.S. Alaskan coast. This report identifies direct, indirect, and induced impacts on the watershed economies, including gross income, total business and household expenditures, state tax income, and approximate part- and full-time jobs provided by the river systems. Specifically, the research considers fishing, hunting and trapping, and the tourism industry activities as primary economic sources with priority needs for renewal and sustainability.
