DescriptionWe segmented a sample of sport fishermen into six unique age cohorts for the purposes of determining if significant differences existed on four recreation related dimensions. No significant differences for activity or non activity-specific elements of the experience were found. Some differences were found for mediated interaction and resource dependency, and clear differences were found for support of various management' rules and regulations. Predictions and results were framed in terms of recreation specialization.
