Marine recreational fisheries on-line survey needs public input

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources is working to produce an educational tool to help everyone better understand the state's marine fishery resources, and to help that along, the public is being asked to take an on-line survey.

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) envisions a concise simple format combining information from anglers, scientific literature, and work conducted by DNR. For this effort to be a success, the DNR needs help in defining products that best serve the public's needs and interests.
Please take a few minutes on the survey to tell the DNR a little about how you interact with natural resources and your specific interests related to inshore marine recreational fisheries, which are the focus of the first phase of the effort. Information collected in the survey will be used to help direct the DNR's efforts toward the species and topics most important to the public.

South Carolina's natural resources are essential for economic development and contribute nearly $30 billion and 230,000 jobs to the state's economy. Find out why Life's Better Outdoors.
