From 2019 to 2021, the Valuing recreational fishing project will be asking Australians to take part in surveys that measure the social and economic values of recreational fishing and other outdoor activities. These surveys will help us answer questions including:

  • Does recreational fishing have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of fishers?
  • How do the benefits of recreational fishing compare to other outdoor activities?
  • What is the economic value of recreational fishing to the Australian economy, and the economy of different States and Territories?
  • What barriers sometimes prevent people experiencing benefits from fishing?
The study is funded by the Australian government and the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation.
