The objective of this project is to develop economic models of how individuals use the Albemarle-Pamlico Sounds for recreational fishing. In the process, the authors sought to describe demands for marine fishing. These models would be used to evaluate one aspect of the benefits people would realize from improvements in the quality of these resources. Management policies directed to reducing the effluent loading entering the sounds could then be evaluated. These models include the average catch rates for all boat fishermen using specific entry points as a measure of the quality of area of the estuary for fishing. The preliminary findings suggest that a 25 percent increase in the catch rate would increase the value to a fisherman of a typical fishing trip to each area by between $10 and $71 in 1981 dollars.
