Marine Recreational Fishing Data Collection Programs
NOAA Fisheries' Marine Recreational Information Program works with state and regional partners to develop, implement, and continually improve a national network of recreational fishing surveys. These data collection programs inform NOAA Fisheries' estimates of total recreational catch, which are used by scientists and managers to assess and maintain sustainable fish stocks. This webpage lists the surveys whose data contribute to the federal catch statistics published each year in Fisheries of the United States, as well as the data collection programs whose designs have been certified by NOAA Fisheries.
