Abstract or Summary
  • Greater awareness of the importance of ecosystem services and ecosystem management has sparked interest in examining on-the-water location choices of fishermen; however, some studies still rely on selfreporting due to high costs or governmental restrictions to obtaining GPS and satellite information. Selfreported data may be inaccurate due to spatial comprehension difficulties or an unwillingness to truthfully report on-the-water locations. Uncertainty in spatial data can lead to significant differences in the outcomes of valuation studies since travel cost estimates are highly dependent upon location specifications. This study examines the implications of uncertainty in self-reported data on willingness to pay estimates obtained from random utility models using self-reported data from recreational anglers in Puerto Rico. Inability to translate on-the-water locations to grid cells on a map and concerns about area closures may have adversely impacted the quality of data obtained from these fishermen. This study examines the effects of locational uncertainty on the estimated value of coral reefs around Puerto Rico.
