Abstract or Summary
  • The linefish sector is one of the 10 commercial fisheries in Namibia. This sector is made up of two subsectors: commercial right holders and angling. The angling subsector is further divided into two types of fishing activities; subsistence angling which serve as a source of food supply and recreational angling which is carried out for pleasure or sport. As the custodian of fisheries resources in Namibia, the Ministry of Fisheries and Maine Resources conduct an angling survey every year to draw conclusions and recommendations to aid prudent and sustainable management of this resource. The survey also collects data on the economic value of angling in terms of government revenue through angling permit fees, contribution to food supply; expenditure on angling activities in terms of buying bait, fishing equipments, food, accommodation and entertainment. The angling survey is conducted during December because it is the month with the highest number of angling permits issued as its holiday time for most of the anglers. Unlike other commercial fisheries in Namibia, angling is not subject to a quota system but rather to a daily bag limit. The objective of this paper is to look at the economics of recreational fishery in Namibia.
