This article compares male and female anglers' motivations and ethics for recreational fishing. Results are derived from a 2000–2001 survey of Minnesota anglers. Men reported higher involvement in fishing than women did. Women rated motivations related to catching fish for food higher than men did. Men rated developing skills and catching trophy fish higher than women did. Men agreed more with ethics related to catch-and-release fishing. Opinions about regulations and actual fishing behavior reflected each gender's motivations and ethics.

This paper presents new welfare measures for marginal changes in river quality in selected English rivers. The river quality indicators used include chemical, biological and habitat-level attributes. Economic values for recreational use of three types of river —upland, lowland and chalk—are presented. A survey of anglers was carried out and using these data, two travel cost models were estimated, one to predict the numbers of trips and the other to predict angling site choice.
