    "NOAA's Saltwater Recreational Fishing Attitudes and Preference Survey is a national survey focusing specifically on understanding saltwater fishermen's attitudes and preferences regarding the management of recreational (non-commercial) fishing opportunities. The national survey was created by NOAA Fisheries economists, regional recreational fishing coordinators, and key recreational fishing stakeholder groups. The survey was tested by four focus groups (held in Florida and California) and implemented for the first time across six coastal regions of the mainland United States in 2013, although Hawaii was not included in this initial effort. Due to fishing characteristics considered unique to Hawaii, the survey instrument was modified by Honolulu-based staff from NOAA Fisheries, the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council, and community members. The Hawaii version of the survey was implemented in 2015. The sample frame (list of potential respondents) for the Hawaii survey was developed through the use of several state and federal registries and supplemented by field efforts to identify noncommercial fishermen, in particular, those who are primarily shore-based. Due to these nonprobabilistic sampling methods, results should be considered in the context of the survey respondents, and there are no efforts made to generalize results to the non-commercial fishing population. Surveys were distributed to 3,500 potential respondents and administered through a modified Dillman approach (Dillman, 1978). Surveys that were completed by fishermen who self-identified as non-residents (question 1) or commercial fishermen (question 3) were considered invalid and not included in the analysis, in total 1,128 (36% response rate) returned surveys were considered valid and used in this analysis"--Executive Summary.
