Marine Game Fishing Is Big Business


Author(s):
Abstract:
Big game fishing accounted for a major economic contribution to eastern North Carolina. A burgeoning market for recreational fishing trips off North Carolina's coast was born in the 1940s. Once considered a hobby, coastal populations quickly learned to tap into the activity which tourists were willing to pay for. Recreational fishing gained one million in revenue because of growing popularity during this period.
