The National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation (Survey) has been conducted since 1955 and is one of the oldest and most comprehensive continuing recreation surveys. The purpose of the Survey is to gather information on the number of anglers, hunters, and wildlife-watching participants (formerly known as nonconsumptive wildlife-related participants) in the United States. Information also is collected on how often these recreationists participate and how much they spend on their activities.

Author:

Journal: 
North American Journal of Fisheries Management Vol 15:3

An understanding of why people do not fish or do not fish often is needed if participation in fishing is to be encouraged. Knowledge about how different fisheries management actions affect participation rates can provide guidelines in this effort. I investigated constraints on fishing and people's behavioral response to different management actions among residents age 16 and older in the city of Harstad, northern Norway.

Inland fisheries in England and Wales have high economic and social values. Managing participation to maximise fishery performance is key to maintaining this status. The capital value of fishing rights for migratory salmonid fisheries is €165 million. Coarse fisheries contribute €1030 million to the economy. The central tenet to increasing participation in recreational salmonid fisheries is that an increase in stock size will result in more anglers accessing the fishery.

Fishing license sales are stagnant in Minnesota and declining in many states. It is important to understand what motivates and constrains people’s fishing participation. In 2005, we mailed surveys to 900 male and 900 female residents of the Minneapolis–St. Paul, Minnesota (USA) metropolitan area to determine attitudes and beliefs about outdoor recreation and fishing. Based on survey responses from 39.3% of the sample, we examined factors that motivate and constrain fishing among urban and suburban residents.

Journal: 
Fisheries 23: 19-27

In 1995 a new research-based fisheries outreach program called Fishing in the Parks began as a university-agency-organization collaboration. The focus of this effort was to understand outreach program participants and to assess whether this program effectively reached the targeted novice-angler segment of families with young children. In 1995 and 1996, surveys were administered to 2,374 adult and youth program participants, and we achieved a 77% overall response rate.
