Demographic profile of recreational fisheries (KB-24-005-016)

Project: LNV project

Project Details


We used a statistical model to explain fluctuations in participation rates of recreational fishers over the years. The results are that the probability of participation decreases with age, increases with family size, decreases with education level and depends on gender (many more men than women). We also found that low avid anglers (that do fish only few times a year) are more likely to drop out the sector than high avid fishers. These findings can be useful to estimate the participation rate without actually doing a survey. However, we also found yearly differences that can not be explained by demographics.
