Marine Recreational Fishing in the Middle and South Atlantic: A Descriptive Study

This report is the descriptive phase of a research project on the economics of marine recreational fishing along the Middle and South Atlantic coast of the U.S. It describes the data from three large surveys on sportfishing, surveys that will form the basis of a subsequent phase of the research project. This first phase provides a broad-brushed picture of saltwater fishing during the 1980's and serves as a foundation for a more comprehensive economic study yet to come.
The report includes the following chapters:

    1. The Purpose of the Research
    2. Sportfishing in New York
    3. Sportfishing in New Jersey
    4. Sportfishing in Delaware
