Abstract

There is really no need to point out the importance of saltwater sport fishing. In summer almost every pier, bridge, beach, and jetty have their complement of recreational fishermen. Marinas owe much of their growth to the increasing popularity of sport fishing, and party boats and charter boats can be seen at many. Fishing derbies have become popular, for example, the Virginia Sport Fishing Tournament, which is sponsored by the State. There is no doubt that saltwater sport catches have been increasing since at least 1945, with increasing affluence and leisure time, and the numbers of saltwater sport fishermen have been increasing, also.
