    Description

    The Penobscot River has been the focus of a major Atlantic Salmon restoration effort for the last 25 years. The river has received national and international attention with the proposal of an additional 38-megawatt hydroelectric facility on its main stem. This study was conducted in response to a need to identify recreation enhancement and mitigation options related to licensing of the proposed facility. Our research to date describes recreation use patterns and preferences, and associated perceptions of recreation experiences and constraints. Detailed findings are published in Maine Agricultural and Forest Experiment Station Miscellaneous Report No. 381: Penobscot River Recreation Study, May 1994. Additional research will look more fully into factors related to leisure constraints in the study area.
