dc.description.abstractThis report explores the validity of these concerns. It poses the question: do the costs of adopting more environmentally sustainable and salmon friendly agricultural practices outweigh the economic benefits? The result of our research suggests that this is not the case. To the contrary, we assessed the costs and benefits of changes in supply side and demand side farming practices and found that, at a minimum, adopting more environmentally sustainable practices may, at a minimum, have a neutral economic impact on most farms, and may, at best, save many farmers money, lead to increased market share, and for those who market their products as organic or sustainably grown, even increase price margins by 5%-30% or more.en
