The willingness to pay of participants in cisco fishing was studied for 1970. Opportunity cost of time, calculated from foregone income, was examined as part of the total costs of fishing. The opportunity cost of time was found to be a significant factor in the consumers' decision to participate, and therefore effected the valuation of the recreation considerably.
Additionally, the coefficients of income and opportunity costs of time were compared and found to be of different sign for rural counties indicating a difference between the two variables.
