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.

Journal: 
Fisheries 23: 19-27

In 1995 a new research-based fisheries outreach program called Fishing in the Parks began as a university-agency-organization collaboration. The focus of this effort was to understand outreach program participants and to assess whether this program effectively reached the targeted novice-angler segment of families with young children. In 1995 and 1996, surveys were administered to 2,374 adult and youth program participants, and we achieved a 77% overall response rate.

Use of two approaches to measure children's motivations to fish in Norway

Author: 
Aas, O.
Date: 
1996
Journal: 
Human Dimensions of Wildlife, 1(3), 15-28.

This paper reports on the use of two different methods to ascertain why 11- to 16-year-old children fish in Norway. The first method employed open-ended questions to determine what the children liked best and disliked about fishing. The second method used fixed list, multiple-item questions to solicit information about the relative importance to the children of 10 different reasons for fishing. The two studies yielded similar results about the primary reason why children fish, but the second study provided more in-depth information about their multiple motivations.

North American Journal of Fisheries Management Vol 19: 1103-1107

We used fishing diaries to study the fishing patterns of children who participated in the Sportfishing and Aquatic Resources Education Program in central and western New York in 1996 and explored the related costs and benefits. Besides the financial costs, it was difficult and time-consuming to obtain the names of families with children who fish and to obtain parental permission for the children to participate in the diary project, even though we worked through an established youth fishing organization.
