Abstract

This report is concerned with the behavioral inputs into the decisions concerning fishery resource management. Topics discussed are motives, expectations, and opinions of fishermen concerning the fishing experience and present-day fishery management practices and regulations; how management agencies and sportsmen organizations have dealt with recreational fishing; the need for managers to utilize this behavioral information in forming management decisions; and where past people-wildlife research has been and where it must lead in the future. Material for this paper came from copies of published articles and library research.
