DescriptionA logistic regression was used to predict anglers' resource-substitution decisions based on three dimensions of recreation specialization (behavior, skill and knowledge, and commitment), two dimensions of place attachment (place identity and place dependence), and three demographic indicators. Results indicated that place dependence was the most effective predictor. Also, boat ownership, level of activity importance, income, age, place identity, club membership, and gender were the next most effective predictors of willingness to substitute. Personal and behavioral commitment demonstrated different effects on willingness to make substitution decisions. Furthermore, male and higher income anglers showed a greater willingness to substitute.
