Title: Recreational Angler Expenditure Surveys
Status: Completed

A series of expenditure surveys have been done both regionally and nationally. Nation-wide surveys of recreational anglers in all coastal states across the U.S. were done in 2006 and in 2011. Expenditures on trips by mode (for-hire, private boat, and shore) were collected for both residents and non-residents of each state, and annual expenditures on durable goods were collected by resident status. Only expenditures related to saltwater fin-fishing are included. Regional expenditure surveys were done in the Northeast, Southeast, and Pacific.


For use in understanding the economic contribution that recreational angler expenditures have to the economy of a state, region, or to the US. Data from the surveys are used in economic impact models.
