 T[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]he  [color=#333333;]Survey of Recreational Fishing in Canada, 2015 , [/color][color=#333333;]produced by the Dept. of Fisheries and Oceans every 5 years has just been released - just 4 years late as usual apparently because it had to be translated into French. The next one is due in 2020 but don't expect to see it till 2024.[/color][/font]


[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=#333333;]Some interesting data e.g.[/color][/font]

  • [font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=rgb(51,51,51);]The average number of days fished per angler was 15 days compared with 13 days in 2010[/color][/font]
  • [font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Anglers caught over 194 million fish of all species and retained nearly 59 million [/font]
  • [font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"][color=rgb(51,51,51);]In 2015, for example, 42% of Canadian anglers were in the 45-64 age group, whereas only 28% of Canadians, in general, were in the same age range. The relative percentage of Canadian anglers 65 years of age and over was higher in 2015 than 2010, 14% and 11%, respectively.[/color][/font]
  • [font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Walleye was the most predominant species caught nationally, representing 26% of the total catch, followed by trout, pike, perch and bass.[/font]
  • [font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]All anglers spent over $2.5 billion in direct recreational fishing expenditures in 2015 [/font]
  • [font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]In 2015, anglers invested $5.3 billion in boats, motors, camping gear, special vehicles, real estate and other durable goods related to their recreational fishing activities[/font]
