ABSTRACT

This paper analyzed the determinants of recreational fishing demand in Korea by combining a binary probability model for participation and a conditional probability model for positive frequencies. The consumption decision was separately analyzed to accommodate the characteristics of surface use for fishing. Logit and truncated negative binomial models were utilized to apply for the participation and consumption decision, respectively. The impact of demographic characteristics on participation decision for fishing appeared to be significantly high in gender, region of residence, income, job, and education. Types of leisure were also had significant correlations with participation decision. The impact of certain types of leisure and the variables related to fishing behavior on consumption decision appeared to be significant. Travel cost exerted a significantly negative influence on saltwater fishing. However, the influence of demographic characteristics on the consumption decision was not statistically significant in any types of surface use for fishing.
