This dataset contains telephone (n=1743), mail (n=800), and face-to-face (n=132) survey data collected from the recreational fishing community in the Great Barrier Reef region. The surveys were aimed primarily at understanding fishers' attitudes and perceptions regarding the 2004 rezoning of the GBR and the impacts of the new zoning plan on recreational fishing activity and the spatial distribution of recreational fishing effort. Data units: Quantitative attitudinal and perception data plus extensive spatial data on recreational fishers' pre- and post-rezoning fishing locations. References: - Sutton, S.G.and R. Tobin. 2009.
