Angler Action is a growing army of anglers recording their fishing trip and catch data to benefit the future of gamefish.
Our tools are developed through collaboration between research scientists and anglers.
Angler Action data fills a critical need in fishery management by collecting data on released as well as harvested fish.
We collect information on fish relative sizes, numbers and locations that is only available from anglers recording their fishing trips.
Angler Action is a service project of the Snook & Gamefish Foundation, undertaken in partnership with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, University of Florida researchers, and other partners. The current update of Angler Action's database, software and phone apps was made possible by a grant from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
Angler Action data was used in the FWC 2011 Snook Stock Assessment and is is slated for use in other species' stock assessments and
