Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

PLoS ONE has published a new paper on the Historical Patterns and Drivers of Spatial Changes in Recreational Fishing Activity in Puget Sound, Washington. The authors found that over a 60 year period, locations of prime fishing activity remained largely unchanged, though with increased fishing activity despite decreased fish abundance. The advent of motorized boats and fish-finders helped to expand fishing activity beyond piers. You may download the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
