Ohio Anglers Encouraged to Participate in Study
From The Outdoor Wire
COLUMBUS, OH - The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife invites anglers to visit www.ohiodnr.com/creel to take a new online angler survey.
The online survey asks anglers to provide feedback on a variety of topics including: black bass regulations, usefulness of the division's inland fishing forecast, limited access fishing at La Su An Wildlife Area, fishing at American Electric Power ReCreation lands, and fishing Ohio's rivers and streams. Anglers will also be given the opportunity to provide general comments about fishing in Ohio.
The online survey will be available beginning May 3 and will run through September 30, 2010. Responses to the survey are confidential. Information provided by anglers through the survey is vital to the successful management of Ohio's fisheries and the Division of Wildlife encourages all anglers to participate.
Fisheries biologists use angler survey data in combination with biological data from fish populations to identify ways of improving fishing on Ohio's inland reservoirs, lakes, rivers and Lake Erie.
