Understanding environmental and fishing–related concerns of Red River anglers in Louisiana

Understanding environmental and fishing–related concerns of Red River anglers in Louisiana The purposes of this study are to understand environmental and fishing–related concerns and to identify homogenous groups of Red River anglers using data collected from the 2004 Louisiana Fishing Survey. Eight statements describing environmental and fishing–related concerns were condensed into two attitudinal dimensions: Surroundings and Catch. The K–means cluster analysis was performed with a three–cluster solution: Harvest concerns, Atmosphere concerns, and General concerns groups. Results of this study can be used to frame scenarios for recreational fisheries management purposes in Louisiana Red River area. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Interdisciplinary Environmental Review Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

The purposes of this study are to understand environmental and fishing–related concerns and to identify homogenous groups of Red River anglers using data collected from the 2004 Louisiana Fishing Survey. Eight statements describing environmental and fishing–related concerns were condensed into two attitudinal dimensions: Surroundings and Catch. The K–means cluster analysis was performed with a three–cluster solution: Harvest concerns, Atmosphere concerns, and General concerns groups. Results of this study can be used to frame scenarios for recreational fisheries management purposes in Louisiana Red River area.
