NOAA Scientists Study Potential Bias in Recreational Surveys
The 2006 National Research Council review of NOAA Fisheries' recreational fisheries data program pointed out some factors that may cause overestimates or underestimates of catch and effort figures. Over the past year, NOAA Fisheries scientists have been evaluating these and other sources of potential bias in hopes of minimizing any impact. This analysis will be used by future interdisciplinary teams as part of NOAA's ongoing effort to upgrade the recreational data program.
