Recreational fishing is an important component of the tourism industry and an important component of regional economies around the world. When angling tourists reach threatened freshwater ecosystems, however, there is a risk of degrading the very fishery and landscapes that attracted them, thwarting long-term economic development prospects and reducing biodiversity.

Declines in recreational fishing participation, underrepresentation of non-whites among the angling population, and increased urban immigration and sprawl has prompted the development of urban fishing programs. This study sought to develop profiles of anglers living within urban areas located throughout the state of Arkansas. We separated anglers based on the percentage of their fishing effort that was spent within their city of residence. Anglers that predominately fished urban waters were 34% more likely to be non-white than anglers that fished rural waters exclusively.

The benefits and constraints to angling participation experienced by recreational anglers with and without disabilities were compared in this study. Data were gathered for 775 angler organization members (n = 347 with disabilities) responding to a mail survey in Germany. Anglers with disabilities were older and more often retired than anglers without disabilities, but there were no differences in angling frequency between angler groups.

Constraints on Sportfishing and Effect of Management Actions to Increase Participation Rates in Fishing

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.

Economicevaluation of inland fisheries in England and Wales

Author: 
Peirson, G., Tingley, D., Spurgeon, J. Radford, A.
Journal: 
Fisheries Management and Ecology, 8,415-424.
Recreational inland fisheries are recognized to have considerable socio-economic benefits, not only for individuals participating directly but also for others in both local and wider communities. In England and Wales the Environment Agency (EA) has a duty to maintain, improve and develop inland fisheries. At present, there are no recent economic evaluations of the whole range of UK inland fisheries for the EA to refer to when confronted with resource issues.

Effects of fishing education programs on antecedents of responsible environmental behaviors

Siemer, W., & Knuth, B.

The Journal of Environmental Education, 32(4), 23-29.

The authors surveyed 619 participants in a national fishing education program (Hooked on Fishing-Not on Drugs) designed for youth in Grades 6-8. The survey of the youth assessed fishing and aquatic stewardship outcomes associated with different levels of program exposure (i.e., no program, programs without fishing, and programs with fishing). Youth who participated in programs that included experience-based fishing were more likely to report several desired fishing and stewardship outcomes.

Estimating values for recreational fishing at freshwater damsin Queensland

Author: 
Rolfe, J. and Prayaga P.
Journal: 
The Australian Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 51, pp.157-174
In this paper, estimates of value for recreational fishing are reported for three major freshwater impoundments in Queensland, Australia, using both travel cost and contingent valuation methods. Policy analysts often require estimates of value when analysing the importance of recreation against other uses of impoundments, or when considering the potential for further investments, such as with fish stocking programs.

Examining changes in participation in recreational fisheries in England and Wales.

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.
