This book on angler survey methods will undoubtedly be used as a manual for future surveys of this kind in North America. It may prove to be of even greater value in other countries where fisheries management traditionally is based on other kinds of information or is less developed. -- Biometrics, March 1995
This work is destined to become indispensable to survey administrators and others dealing with this topic. -- Copeia, 1994
