The article discusses the report "Using Grizzly Bears to Assess Harvest-Ecosystem Tradeoffs in Salmon Fisheries." Conducted by researchers at the University of California Santa Cruz and in Canada, the study suggested that increasing escapement of Pacific salmon in coastal streams will help improve the natural environment, maintain ecological balance as well as increase the population in oceans, leading to larger harvests. The full report is published online in the journal, PLoS Biology.
