Angler Diary Program
NATIONAL DIGITAL ANGLER DIARY PROGRAM (Ryan Plummer)
Angler diary programs (also called creel surveys) are well established as an important tool in managing recreational fisheries. The Canadian Angler Diary Program aims to engage anglers in the collection of fisheries information and ultimately enhance the quality of Canada's recreational fisheries. By incorporating technology (e.g., electronic reporting via the internet and satellite imagery), the program builds upon traditional diary instruments and enhances their efficiency, scope and accuracy.
The Canadian Angler Diary Program is supported by the CCFund of Trout Unlimited Canada, Fly Fishing Canada and the Ontario/Brantford Steelheaders. It involves researchers from Brock University as well as the University of Guelph.
