Instreams is a collaboration project between Ifremer and NOAA aimed at understanding governance conflicts that span across multiple species, economic sectors, and legal mandates. It specifically investigates institutions surrounding salmon recovery on the West Coast of the US, where declining wild salmon runs have evolved into a durable crisis due to a combination of factors, including: human harvest, hydropower dams, habitat degradation, reduced stream flow caused by agricultural water diversions, hatchery policies, predation, and others. The complex, diadromous life histories of salmon, and their associated wide geographic and cross-jurisdictional ranges, make implementation of integrated policies particularly difficult. One of the main goals of Instreams is to specify analytical frameworks for evaluating management tradeoffs among competing objectives within and across species, economic sectors, and jurisdictional boundaries. The project also seeks to inform the development of integrated institutional regimes that consider the diversity of stakeholder interests and the potential benefits of cross-sectoral coordination.
