Abstract or Summary
  • New Zealand marine recreational fisher’s attitudes to their fisheries and fisheries management are discussed in the light of the findings from two studies. The first study, a national telephone survey of more than 600 fishers, investigated why fishers seek to go recreational fishing and their attitudes towards the fisheries management. The second study (a follow-up survey), assessed fisher’s attitudes to fisheries management from a series of focus group sessions in the main recreational fishing region of New Zealand. The research provides insight into: • The reasons for recreational fishing and their relative importance • Why fishers generally do not know the rules • Fisher’s attitudes towards the fisheries management regime and how fishers could contribute to the management of their fishery. • Fisher’s views of the level of compliance with the recreational fishing regulations • Why recreational fisher rules adopted /rejected by fishers • How information is transferred between fishers. The research also indicated that there is a high level of support for the current management regime and that fishers are prepared, in some activities at least, to take a greater role in management.
