  • Description:
    The mental and physical benefits of accessible coastlines for urban residents will be impacted by climate change. Using place attachment, identity, adaptation, climate, and recreational fishing literature, this study investigates how urban and peri-urban shore recreational fishers will likely respond to impacts from climate change, specifically, those associated with rainfall, hurricanes and fish species. Findings from anglers interviewed at peri-urban public access sites in Rhode Island indicate that increased rainfall and hurricanes are perceived to reduce recreational fishing use through lack of access, dangerous conditions and erosion. Climate change impacts were conceptualised as short or long term with many anglers highly adaptive to short term impacts. Anglers with health issues or children were less motivated to use substitution gear or strategies for weather changes. Increased immediate fish abundance may increase shore recreational fishing. These findings allow assessment and interpretation of how recreational fishers will use coastal sites in the future.
