Abstract

Following the development of recreational fishing license programs throughout the United States, Puerto Rico is working to implement their first program. Implementation would help Puerto Rico both to collect data and funds that can be used to combat overfishing and increase fishery access. Drawing on the results of surveys and interviews, this project provides Puerto Rico’s Department of Natural and Environmental Resources with recommendations to establish license prices to best financially and environmentally manage fisheries.
