Aas, O.

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.
