Striped Bass Questionnaire
You are invited to participate in a questionnaire on striped bass. This questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. You are under no obligation to complete all questions, and are free to withdraw from participating at any time by not submitting the questionnaire form or clicking the ‘submit’ button online. Once submitted, because the questionnaire is anonymous, there is no feasible way to withdraw your responses. The only responsibility of participants is to answer the survey honestly and to the best of their ability.
This research is being conducted by Dr. Trevor Avery and his students to compile angler views on and participation in striped bass fishing in the Maritimes and the associated by-catch of little and winter skates, the economic benefits of recreational fishing for striped bass, and the conservation of striped bass. Benefits of this research are to increase the collective knowledge of striped bass fishing in the Maritimes, the economic value of such activities, and the perception of striped bass biology and conservation to better manage and conserve this species.
This information will be compiled and presented in various outlets such as websites, blogs, scientific presentations, research reports and theses, and research articles. Responses will be summarized.
