    Description

    Background and Definitions. NSRE 2000 is the first National Survey to include a broad assessment of the Nation’s participation in marine recreation. Approximately every five years since 1955, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has conducted a National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife Associated Recreation. But the marine component of recreation was only broken out for saltwater fishing. In 1979, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) initiated the Marine Recreational Fisheries Statistics Survey (MRFSS). This survey is an annual survey of catch and effort. So prior to the NSRE 2000, national surveys of marine recreation have been limited to saltwater fishing.
