Dinneford, E. 1995. "A Comparison of Changes In Rural Local Entry Permit Holdings over the 1975-1984, the 1985-1994 and 1975-1994 Time Periods, With Special Emphasis On The Bristol Bay Area." CFEC 95-6N.


This report looks at the change in holdings of limited entry permits by persons who live in rural areas that are local to the limited fishery's fishing area. Summary data are provided for all limited fisheries as well as the Bristol Bay salmon fisheries. The 1975-1994 time period is broken into two ten year sub-periods. The data indicate that the net transfer of permits away form "rural local" permit holders was more prevalent in absolute numbers during the first ten years of the limited entry program. Nevertheless, the "rural drain" phenomena has continued through 1994.
