Constraints on Sportfishing and Effect of Management Actions to Increase Participation Rates in Fishing


Oystein Aas

North American Journal of Fisheries Management Vol 15:3

An understanding of why people do not fish or do not fish often is needed if participation in fishing is to be encouraged. Knowledge about how different fisheries management actions affect participation rates can provide guidelines in this effort. I investigated constraints on fishing and people's behavioral response to different management actions among residents age 16 and older in the city of Harstad, northern Norway.
