Anglers Encouraged to Participate in Online Fishing Survey
April 21, 2016 - 9:39 AM
COLUMBUS – Anglers are being asked to participate in a
new online survey that will be delivered this spring. Approximately 25,000 randomly
selected Ohio Fishing License holders will receive an email invitation from The
Ohio State University requesting their participation in the survey that covers fishing-related
topics, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR).
Many people frequently ask ODNR Division of Wildlife
employees and legislators about how many anglers fish in Lake Erie. This survey
is aimed at answering that question, as well as understanding how Ohio’s
licensed anglers utilize other resources managed by the ODNR Division of
Anglers that have recently fished Lake Erie will be asked a
series of questions about walleye, yellow perch or black bass fishing to help
determine what characteristics of these fisheries determine successful fishing
trips. Fisheries biologists will use this information to determine management
strategies for these important fisheries.
The ODNR Division of Wildlife routinely partners with The
Ohio State University to conduct research about Ohio’s fisheries. The results
will help the division understand aquatic resource utilization patterns of
Ohio’s anglers across the state.
