MRIP Brochure

March 01, 2019

This brochure explains how the Marine Recreational Information Program collects recreational fishing data and produces estimates.

This brochure provides an overview of NOAA Fisheries' Marine Recreational Information Program: the state-regional-federal partnership that develops and implements a suite of surveys to measure recreational catch rate and effort. It answers the most common questions we receive about recreational fishing data, including how we collect data, estimate total recreational catch, and use the important information we collect from anglers.
