Results of the Recreational Fishing Mailing List Survey

In November 2017 and December 2017, we surveyed our recreational fishing mailing list subscribers to see what people liked and what they wanted to see improved. 280 people responded (which is 20% of the 1,390 subscribers) over 3 weeks, with a 100% completion rate.

These responses will allow us to focus the information we provide to you, so that the emails we send out are as useful and interesting as possible.

Expect to see some changes to the mailing list in the new year as a direct result of this survey.
