[ABNJ Ocean Partnerships] Expenditure and Willingness-to-Pay Survey of Caribbean Billfish Anglers: Summary Report

This circular summarizes the methods and results of a survey designed to estimate angler expenditures and willingness-to-pay (WTP) for billfish recreational fishing in the Caribbean. The survey conducted in 2017 found that the value of billfish recreational fishing and expenditures by recreational fishers are very high in the region. The results demonstrate that there is the potential to raise conservation funds from this resource user group.
