Nebraska Project

Angler behavior in response to management actions on Nebraska reservoirs

January 2009 - December 2013


Participating Agencies

  • Nebraska Game and Parks Commission

Project goals are to understand 1) the participation patterns of anglers on local and regional scales, and 2) how participation patterns of anglers influence fish populations.
