Great Lakes Sportfishing Participation and Economic Impacts: Synthesisand Outlook

In the fisheries community, fisheries professional and stakeholders react to changes in fishing participation with limited understanding of the underlying causes and without placing these changes in a broader societal context.  Obtaining a better understanding of the relative importance of the human and biological factors that affect angler effort is important for management, for forecasting purposes that are useful to stakeholders as well as managers, and for establishing priorities for future research goals.  This research team will synthesize and model the past 3  years of Lake Ontario fisheries angler data to develop the best possible understanding of the factors that have most strongly influenced the fisheries in the past and model those factors for the next 3-5 years.  Agency personnel (e.g., NYSDEC and NYSG extension staff) can convey this information to stakeholders, who can use that information to do risk assessment for their businesses.
