Publication Year: 
Author: Christensen, Neal A.; Watson, Alan E.; Whittaker, Doug

This package contains data from a 2003 study of visitors to the Situk River in the Gulf of Alaska. A sample of recreation visitors at the Yakutat airport departure point were interviewed between April and September. Questions included travel methods, lodging, length of stay, and visitor usage of the Situk River. After conducting a short interview with these visitors a follow up questionnaire was mailed to each respondent. These data include more indepth questions related to non-local recreation use, recreation visitor attitudes, and perceptions of the Situk during the three fishing seasons (Steelhead, King/sockeye, and Coho season).
