Boating Participation to Decline ?

Survey projects more boaters but lower participation rates ...

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and other federal agencies has released an update to the National Survey on Recreation and the Environment.

The report, “Projected Participation in Marine Recreation: 2005 & 2010,” contains forecast data for participation in outdoor marine recreation for the years 2005 and 2010. It examines participation trends for outdoor recreation activities in the United States, including boating, fishing, and a variety of other activities.

According to the report, the rate of participation in fishing, motorboating, sailing, personal watercraft use, canoeing and kayaking will decline in forecast years 2005 and 2010, although the total number of participants will increase in all categories consistent with population growth. Overall, participation rates in outdoor recreation in 13 of the 19 activities covered will decline.
