MA Officials Explain Unusual Survey Methods

The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (MA-DMF) is collaborating with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) to collect information on the Commonwealth’s recreational saltwater fishery to measure its economic value. But apparently the survey has been met with suspicion by some members of the fishing public.

In some cases, anglers have been presented with a cash offer in exchange for giving up their permit and thus the right to fish in marine waters for the remainder of 2012. Other fishermen have received a survey asking for either their willingness to sell their 2012 permit for a particular price or their willingness to have paid a different amount for their 2012 permit.
