Abstract

The three-part objective of this Sea Grant/National Marine Fisheries Service project was: (1) to examine anglers' experiences with tag-and release fishing programs; (2) to determine significant impediments, if any, to expanded participation in such programs as well as catch-and release fishing in general; and (3) to address anglers' concerns and questions about catch/tag-and-release fishing by developing educational material to promote greater participation in these activities and minimize fish mortalities due to improper tagging or release techniques.
