    "Data on saltwater fishing patterns of Texas pleasure boat owners were gathered through a survey of registered boat owners in the state. Sample findings were extrapolated to the statewide population of boat owners. More than 60 percent of the registered boat owners in Texas used their boats for fishing during the study year. However, only 14 percent of all Texas boat owners (approximately 529,000) fished salt water (bays or offshore). Approximately three percent (16,000) of Texas boat owners accounted for more than 120,000 fishing trips in the U.S. Territorial Sea and the Fishery Conservation Zone. The Galveston Bay area, with almost one-half of all bay boat fishing activity and more than one-third of all offshore fishing activity, was identified as the state's center of marine recreational boat fishing. Port Aransas was the second leading offshore recreational fishing port, with almost 25 percent of all offshore trips"--Texas A & M University sea grant publication website (http://texasseagrant.org/publications/category/1983-publications/P15)
