Abstract or Summary
  • Recreational fishing is a compound activity that includes the expectancy and catching of fish. The Australian national recreational fishing survey provides catch and economic data for this activity for the 12 months May 2000 to April 2001. In addition to catch behavioral data, the survey provides economic data for that proportion of expenditure attributed by recreational fishers to recreational fishing. The estimated 3.36 million Australian residents who participated in this activity over the period of the survey spent an estimated $1.85 billion. Expenditure on boats and trailers of $940 million made up half of the expenditure attributed to fishing. The next most important expenditure classification, at $445 million, was travel and accommodation; while expenditure directly involved in fishing made up only 12 per cent ($220 million) of the incurred expenditure. This, and other behavioral and expenditure information is important to policy decisions makers at the national, state and regional levels and to decisions by public and private enterprises on the provision of goods and services to those participating in recreational fishing activities. This includes what uses and to which users fish and associated resources are to be made available; and the policy question of the impact of expenditure attributable to recreational fishing on regional economic activity. Such information is also in decisions concerning the provision of goods and services used in recreational fishing, including the public provision of roads and access to waterways, and the private provision of accommodation and fishing gear.
