This study was conducted to provide longitudinal data on Minnesota residents’ fishing participation and
experiences. To do this, we examined fishing involvement, motivations for fishing, and constraints to
fishing. We also queried anglers’ participation in fishing tournaments, expenditures on fishing-related
equipment and activities, and consumption of fish.
A survey was distributed to 4,900 Minnesotans, including 800 from each of five regions and 900 women
from throughout the state. After adjusting for undeliverable surveys and invalid respondents, the response
rate was 52%.
