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.

Why Do People Drop Out of Recreational Fishing? A Study of Lapsed Fishers from Queensland, Australia

We sought to understand declining recreational fishing participation in Queensland, Australia, by investigating why lapsed fishers ceased fishing and identifying the constraints that prevented them from resuming their fishing participation. The primary reasons for ceasing fishing were lack of time, loss of interest, and poor fishing quality. Most lapsed fishers were able to compensate for loss of fishing activity by increasing participation in other activities; about one-quarter reported a decrease in their overall leisure activity and leisure satisfaction since ceasing fishing.
