The Economic Value of Mid and South Atlantic Sportfishing - Volume II

This report is a study of the economic value of marine recreational fishing on the East Coast of the U.S., from Long Island, New York to Key Biscayne, Florida. It is the second in a series on the economics of recreational fishing in this region; the first volume is also available. This study is concerned with the value of recreational fishing opportunities to anglers, not individuals and firms providing services to those anglers. It contains an analysis of responses to questions concerning individuals' preferences, both stated and revealed, for sportfishing sites. The ultimate goal of the project is to document the value of marine resources derived from recreational fishing from New York to Florida.
