    Default More compelling sportfish data out today

    Saltwater Recreational Fishermen Boon for Economy, Says NOAA Recreational saltwater anglers pumped more than $31 billion into the U.S. economy in 2006, with Florida, Texas, California, Louisiana and North Carolina receiving the largest share according to a new study issued by NOAA’s Fisheries Service.



    At the national level, saltwater anglers are estimated to have spent $5.8 billion on trip-based expenses, such as ice, bait, and fuel, and another $25.6 billion on fishing equipment and durable goods like fishing rods, fishing tackle, and boats. The top five coastal recreational fishing states are: Florida ($16.7 billion), Texas ($3.2 billion), California ($3.0 billion), Louisiana ($2.9 billion), and North Carolina ($2.0 billion).



    In addition to quantifying angler expenditures, this study examines how these expenditures circulated through each state’s economy and the national economy using a regional assessment. The $31.4 billion in total U.S. expenditures in 2006 contributed $82.3 billion in total sales, $39.1 billion to gross national product, $24 billion in personal income, and supported nearly 534,000 jobs. The Economic Contribution of Marine Angler Expenditures in the United States 2006 is available online at: http://www.st.nmfs.noaa.gov/st5/index.html A hardcopy of this report may be obtained by contacting Scott Steinback via email at scott.steinback@noaa.gov or by mail at the address below:
