Angler Engagement

Science That Keeps You Hooked

Angler engagement is a major goal of the CSSC. As the first ever research center dedicated to recreational fisheries science, the CSSC has quickly become a nationally recognized leader in providing key science-based information that supports sustainable management of the multibillion-dollar recreational fishery that flourishes along the Gulf Coast. Given the need for angler involvement and outreach efforts that effectively communicate best release practices and current fisheries problems to facilitate angler buy-in of science and management, the overall goal of this proposed work is to undertake a transformational engagement initiative that coalesces the best recreational fisheries science and provides this information to anglers in ways that will advance their role as leaders in fisheries conservation.
