Anglers invited to complete survey
COLUMBUS – The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Division of Wildlife invites anglers to visit www.ohiodnr.com/creel to take a new online angler survey.
The online survey asks anglers to provide feedback on a variety of topics including fishing preferences, fish consumption, fishing regulations for American Electric Power ReCreation lands, and potential threats to the quality of fishing in Ohio. Anglers will also be given the opportunity to provide general comments about fishing in Ohio.
The online survey will be available through September 30, 2011. Responses to the survey are confidential. Information provided by anglers through the surveys is vital to the successful management of Ohio’s fisheries. The division encourages all anglers to participate.
Fisheries biologists use angler survey data in combination with biological data from fish populations to identify ways of improving fishing on Ohio’s inland reservoirs, lakes, rivers, and Lake Erie.
