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.

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.

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.

The importance of catch motives to recreational anglers: The effects of catch satiation and deprivation

Motivation theory suggests that if anglers fail to catch the size, number, or species of fish they most prefer to catch, they will experience the condition of catch-deprivation. Similarly, if anglers succeed in catching the size, number, or species of fish they most prefer to catch, they will experience the condition of catch-satiation. It was hypothesized that the importance trout anglers attach to catching the size, number, or species of fish they most prefer will increase as the level of catch-deprivation increases.
