Abstract:

The 2005 Survey of Recreational Fishing in Canada collected information from anglers about their recreational fishing activities in order to assess the economic and social importance of recreational fisheries to Canada's provinces and territories. As part of this survey, anglers who fished in the province of Ontario were sent a provincial questionnaire containing additional questions about the locations fished, the number of fish caught and harvested by species as well as other socio-economic information regarding their fishing activities. It is, at this time, the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of statistics regarding the harvest, retention and economics of angling in Ontario.
