RBFF AND SOUTHWICK ASSOCIATES FIND FEMALE ANGLERS POSE SIGNIFICANT REVENUE OPPORTUNITY FOR FISHING INDUSTRYRead Now
Female anglers pose a significant revenue opportunity for the fishing industry, according to new research from the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation (RBFF) and Southwick Associates. The research, which was conducted to learn more about the financial impact of increasing female angler participation, found a 10 percent increase in women's participation in fishing could provide an additional $1.0 billion in revenue for the sportfishing industry. This means each additional female participant is worth nearly $1,000 in annual revenue for the industry.
“We know through research that recruiting and retaining female anglers is critical to growing fishing and boating participation overall,” said RBFF President and CEO Dave Chanda. “The bottom line is, increasing female fishing participation is also good for business, and the industry stands to benefit greatly from focusing more on this growing audience.”
