Abstract : This report is an assessment of the short and long term impacts of commercial activity on recreational boating activities on the St. Lawrence River. Future levels of commercial vessel activity are analyzed in light of 5 evaluation criteria. Competition for and conflicts between commercial and recreational users within three physical sections of the River are documented. Secondary sources of information and field interviews conducted during 1981 comprise the basis for this evaluation. An extensive bibliography and a marina facilities inventory map are also included as separate appendices. (Author)
