Participants in the project received this summary report on Friday, August 2nd. By using the mobile app and online reporting options, MyFishCount participants provided information to help managers better understand fishing effort and other data during the 5-day mini-season. The figures below summarize preliminary mini-season data that were submitted by July 20, 2019.
We encourage all anglers to use the MyFishCount app to report fishing activity throughout the year. The project offers users the opportunity to create their own personal fishing logs while demonstrating the effectiveness of using mobile applications for recreational reporting. Over 1,350 users have reported information on over 3,000 fish through the MyFishCount pilot project. Recreational anglers are needed to continue to demonstrate the value of this reporting tool and make a difference in collection of fishery data. Create your account today!
