DescriptionA survey of holders of a 1989 New Hampshire oyster-harvesting license revealed that recreational oyster harvesting is pursued mostly by older men. The 1988 closing of some parts of Great Bay to oyster harvesting resulted in license holders' taking one fewer trip and taking about six minutes longer to harvest one bushel of oysters in 1989. The average annual harvest also decreased almost one bushel. Respondents generally believed that Great Bay oysters were safe to eat. The majority of respondents were not interested in oyster depuration but were willing to contribute toward a fund dedicated to oyster-bed management. Logit analysis revealed that the probability of willingness to contribute to an oyster-bed management fund decreases when the respondent's annual income is smaller than $20,000, and when the respondent's oyster-harvesting experience is fifteen years or fewer.
