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.

Based on cultural differences we expected Hispanic-American and Anglo males would differ on the importance placed on five constructs related to the perceived benefits of recreational fishing: escaping individual stressors, the importance of others, being in a natural environment, interacting with fish, and achievement. Thirteen experience preference items were grouped into five measurement scales to measure perceived benefits of recreational fishing. Only four constructs were measurable. The "importance of others" scale was not reliable enough for statistical testing.
