Angler behavior in response to management on Nebraska reservoirs

Angler behavior in response to management on Nebraska reservoirs

Detailed Description

Recreational fishing is a major factor in structuring inland fish populations, so biologists typically develop lake-specific management plans based on lake-specific attributes of the fishery, including anglers. However, a broader approach is needed by state agencies if they want to understand and maximize angler satisfaction across larger spatial scales to develop more comprehensive, regional management strategies. This study will evaluate the participation patterns of anglers at multiple spatial and temporal scales and determine how these patterns influence fish populations and associated communities, and in turn influence angler groups. Study findings will be used to develop appropriate management strategies at both local and regional scales. This project is a collaboration of researchers across multiple agencies and includes the University of Nebraska—Lincoln and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.
