Abstract
  • Abstract only. The author refers readers to http://elsa.berkeley.edu/~mcfadden.
  • This talk surveys methodological developments in the analysis of recreational fishing demand using the "travel cost method", in which the value of a fishing experience is inferred from the generalized travel costs incurred to reach desirable fishing sites. A first set of issues concern sampling anglers to obtain data on participation, avidity, and site selection, particularly the use of intercept surveys and panels recruited by intercept . A second set of issues deal with the specification and estimation of recreational fishing demand models, particularly the use of mixed multinomial logit models as a device for capturing the distribution of preferences for recreational fishing. The final set of issues concern the translation of estimated demand models into measures of willingness-to-pay (WTP) for improvements in fishing sites.
