Before you work with sports anglers, perhaps consider Balon (2000)?

Hi Nicole,

I agree with the points raised by Jaun, Alice and Steve. We have had
recreational and subsidence fishers actively involved in our research
work in recent years and it has been a win-win for us. It's facilitated
mutual exchange of information, and helped to build community awareness
of the impacts of fishing and the management strategies being applied to
control and sustain it. Management actions that communities value and
support will always yield better results for fish stocks and the people
that harvest them. Early engagement with clear and open communication is
key to achieving effective management and compliance. This paper may be
