This study was conducted to examine Twin Cities’ residents’ motivations for, constraints to, and
participation in outdoor recreation and fishing. We examined perceptions of, attitudes about, and norms
related to fishing. We also inquired about fishing experience and intention to fish in the future.
A survey was distributed to 2,100 Twin Cities’ residents, including a list of 800 men and 800 women
purchased from Survey Sampling Inc. and 500 women drawn from the Minnesota Department of Natural
Resources’ (DNR) electronic licensing systems (ELS). After adjusting for undeliverable surveys and
invalid respondents, the response rate was 37.5%.
