DescriptionThe concept of recreation substitutability has been a continuing research topic for outdoor recreation researchers. This study explores the relationships among variables regarding the willingness to substitute one location for another location. The objectives of the study are 1) to ascertain and predict the extent to which saltwater anglers were willing to substitute fishing at one location for fishing at another location; and 2) identify the relationship between independent variables such as demographic characteristics, constraints, and anglers' specialization variables as predictors and anglers' willingness to substitute one fishing location for another. From the results of the multinomial logistic regression analysis, anglers' willingness to substitute was affected negatively by age, and affected positively by a constraint variable; and anglers' willingness to substitute was negatively associated with specialization variables. Exploring the relationships between recreationists' willingness to substitute and specialization has implications for future research, and can be helpful to outdoor recreation managers for understanding recreationists' substitution behavior.
