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.

Recreational or sports fishing is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide and in many countries represents an important social and cultural activity. In some regions, it also contributes significant income to tourism and tackle businesses. In addition to its importance from a social and economic standpoint, the impact of recreational fishing on the environment and on food webs can often be substantial. This book represents the major output from the 4th World Recreational Fishing Conference held in Norway in June 2005.

This Angling Whole Sport Plan reflects the contribution which angling can make to Sport England’s new strategy in all three key areas of Grow, Sustain and Excel. Participation in the sport is particularly well-researched and monitored through a statutory licensing system applied by the Environment Agency in addition to market research undertaken by the Agency and Sport England. The Angling Whole Sport Plan (WSP) is based largely on information made available to us from these sources.

During the process by which the number of actors was increased manifold as a result of the development of civil society, the fisher community has lost prominence and importance, fading into the wide spectrum of interests with which it is competing to make its voice heard in decision-making bodies and in the media. This results in what could be termed the participation paradox—the greater the number of actors, the smaller the role each plays, and the lesser the importance of traditional sectors.

In urban environments, participation in angling and other outdoor recreation activities has been declining. A range of factors including an aging populace, immigration, and busy lifestyles, may contribute to decreased angling participation in these urban centers. During the last 30 years the Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota (USA) metropolitan area has had growing populations of African Americans, Asians, Chicano/Latinos, and individuals from other communities of color. It is important to understand how changing demographics may affect urban angling participation.
