NYC Angler Diary Cooperator Program
Wanted: New York City Anglers
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is recruiting volunteer anglers to participate in a New York City Angler Diary Cooperator Program. This program will enable DEC to collect information from experienced anglers targeting freshwater fish species to help supplement data from DEC fisheries surveys being performed throughout the five boroughs.
Data collected at the end of the fishing season will be compiled and eventually incorporated into an annual report available to the public. Diaries will be returned to anglers after compilation of data.
When to Participate
The Angler Diary Cooperator Program will be conducted annually from the beginning of spring to the last day in October.
How to Participate
Interested anglers can send their name, address, and email address to email@example.com
Participants will receive instructions on how to collect information and a DEC Angler Diary to use for recording fishing activity (e.g. date, time, location, fish length) for each trip.
At the end of the fishing season, the diaries will be submitted to DEC. After the data has been compiled and report created, each participant will receive a report of the diary program results for the season, and the diary will be returned to the angler.
