Economic factors play important roles in designating endangered species and the design of recovery plans. Economics is important irrespective of the role it plays in decisions to classify salmon as endangered, or decisions about recovery plans. Economic analysis can provide those affected with information about their future. For individuals, communities, and businesses faced with adjusting to Endangered Species Act actions, good information based on economic impact estimates can be most useful.
