Evaluation of fisheries management and sustainability indicators can be supported by a reliable index of harvest rate. However, the most appropriate model that accounts for recreational fisheries is largely unknown. In order to adjust for these factors, generalized linear models were applied to data from shore-based recreational fishing surveys conducted in Western Australia between 2010 and 2016. Five candidate error distributions (lognormal, Gamma, Zero-Altered Gamma, Tweedie, and delta… 

Marine recreational fisheries — current state and future opportunities

Marine recreational fisheries (MRF) have important social and economic benefits, but can impact fish stocks and the environment. The diverse and dispersed nature of these fisheries makes them

Comparing the efficiency of paper-based and electronic data capture during face-to-face interviews

This study demonstrates how EDC can be successfully implemented in coastal and marine environments without compromising the randomised, stratified nature of a survey and highlights the cost-effectiveness of this method.



Recreational Fishing Effort, Catch, and Harvest for Murray Cod and Golden Perch in the Murrumbidgee River, Australia

AbstractRecreational fishery management aims to prevent species decline and provide sustainable fisheries. Overfishing has been frequently suggested as a cause of historic fishery declines within the

An assessment of catches and harvest of recreational shore angling in the north of Portugal

The results suggest that the catches of sea breams and sea bass by day-time recreational shore angling in northern Portugal are small compared with commercial fishing, and other recreational activities, such as boat fishing and spear-fishing, must be assessed.

Developing Model-Based Indices of Lake Whitefish Abundance Using Commercial Fishery Catch and Effort Data in Lakes Huron, Michigan, and Superior

Abstract Fishery catch per effort (CPE) is often used to assess relative fish abundance, and in many Great Lakes and other freshwater applications the CPE index is based on either an average or the

Abundance indices for long-lived tropical snappers: estimating standardized catch rates from spatially and temporally coarse logbook data

The Northern Demersal Scalefish Fishery has historically comprised a small fleet (≤10 vessels year−1) operating over a relatively large area off the northwest coast of Australia. This multispecies

Catch-Rate Standardization for Yellow Perch in Lake Erie: A Comparison of the Spatial Generalized Linear Model and the Generalized Additive Model

This study estimated catch rates of yellow perch Perca flavescens from a fishery-independent gill-net survey in Lake Erie during 1990–2003 by comparing the goodness of fit, reduction of spatial autocorrelation, and the generalized additive model (GAM).

Spatial patterns of recreational exploitation in eastern Australian ROFAs: implications for zonal management

Effective management of recreational fisheries requires information on fine-scale spatial patterns of recreational exploitation. Such information is particularly important for specially designated

Few fish but many fishers: a case study of shore-based recreational angling in a major South African estuarine port

Richards Bay is a subtropical estuary that has been extensively dredged to accommodate one of Africa's largest commercial ports. In the non-commercial areas of the harbour, shore-based angling is a
