Comparison of Two Angler Data Collection Methods In North Dakota

By James F. Baltezore, Jay A. Leitch and Shawn R. Vachal


North Dakota's recreational fishing industry is an important part of the state's economic base. Resident and nonresident anglers spent nearly $260 million dollars on fishing-related activities in the state in 1990 (Baltezore and Leitch 1992). Management of a resource that generates this amount of economic activity requires accurate and periodic information. Management uses information in at least two ways. Information is initially used to make a decision. Once a decision is made, additional information is collected to assess the results or outcomes of that decision. In effect, information is used to make a decision and monitor changes resulting from that decision (Kerestes and Leitch 1983). Periodic information is needed to monitor the outcomes of management's decision.Environmental Economics and Policy, Land Economics/Use,
