ABSTRACT

The goal of this project was to reduce user conflicts and foster cooperation between commercial and recreational fishermen in the New York Marine District. The educational campaign utilized a variety of media resources and delivery approaches.  Over 5.5 million commercial fishermen, recreational fishermen, and members of the general public were educated through the print media, videos, public service announcements on cable TV and radio, broadcast news, community affairs talk shows, individual presentations, printed handouts, and hands-on fishing trips. The results of this project will be improved decision making, less hysteria based on misinformation, and a reduction in user conflicts between commercial and recreational fishermen.
