The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), sponsored a research study in which data collection staff conducted in-person interviews with marine recreational anglers along the east coast and in Puerto Rico. Field staff traveled to assigned sites to interview anglers about their fishing experiences, collect a variety of information, and (when possible) weigh, measure, and identify fish that the anglers caught. These assigned sites included beaches, banks, piers, docks, jetties, and access points for private, charter, and head boats, including marinas, boat ramps and other points of entry to marine waters.

Headway Workforce Solutions was proud to support this project in April 2017 with the provision of field data collection staff.
