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 Angler Action 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 research projects.
The Angler Action Foundation enhances the fishing experience for all the recreational anglers through our science based research and advanced technology applications.
We connect recreational anglers with a variety of public and private entities with the goal of improving our fish stocks and their habitats.
Our education approach allows anglers to teach themselves how to become better anglers through their everyday fishing experiences, as well as educate researchers and managers about angler behaviors.
