Wanted: New York City Anglers

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is recruiting volunteer anglers to participate in a New York City Angler Diary Cooperator Program. This program will enable DEC to collect information from experienced anglers targeting freshwater fish species to help supplement data from DEC fisheries surveys being performed throughout the five boroughs.

Participants will receive instructions on how to collect information and a DEC Angler Diary booklet to use for recording fishing activity (e.g. date, time, location, fish length) for each trip. Some responsibilities will be to record the species, length, location, and some brief information about the fishing trip for each fish caught. At the end of the fishing season, the diaries will be submitted to DEC.

Data collected from the diaries will be compiled and eventually incorporated into an annual report available to the public. Each participant will receive a report of the diary program results for the season, and the diary will be returned to the angler.

Start date: Beginning of spring 2013
End date: last day in October 2013

How to participate

Interested anglers can send their name, address and email address to fwfish2@gw.dec.state.ny.us.

Participants will receive instructions on how to collect information and a DEC Angler Diary to use for recording fishing activity (e.g. date, time, location, fish length) for each trip.

At the end of the fishing season the diaries will be submitted to DEC. After the data has been compiled and report created, each participant will receive a report of the diary program results for the season and the diary will be returned to the angler.
