Economic Impacts of Recreational Fishing

Recreational fishing brings myriad economic benefits to communities throughout the U.S.

ASA and Southwick Associates created a series of one-page infographics for all 435 Congressional districts in all 50 states.

These results report the economic contributions to the respective state economies from anglers who live within each congressional district. They do not represent the economic contributions that occur within any given district as a result of angler spending. For example, the presence or absence of a large manufacturing firm within a district is not reflected in the equipment spending by a district’s residents.
