Carolyn’s research of the aforementioned New Jersey fishery is part of a larger project
seeking to understand the preferences, behavior, and motivations of recreational anglers in New
Jersey to better inform fisheries management. Said project focuses on the multi-species New
Jersey bottom fish fishery for summer flounder (Paralicthys dentatus), black sea bass
(Centropristis striata), tautog (Tautoga onitis), and scup (Stenotomus chrysops). For her part of
the project, she is designing a discrete choice experiment using Sawtooth Software’s Choice-
Based Conjoint (CBC) software to distribute anglers participating in the fishery.

Ashley Trudeau is a PhD student in Ecology and Evolution at Rutgers University. As part of her dissertation, she is investigating the social-ecological dynamics of the recreational lake fishery in the Northern Highland Lake District of Wisconsin. She plans to apply a landscape modeling approach to understand how angling effort changes with fluctuating fish populations and across a range of ecological conditions. As part of this research, she will develop a discrete choice experiment investigating how different groups of anglers choose among fishing sites that differ in expected fishing quality, species availability, and travel time. Understanding angler decisions will allow fisheries managers to better predict fishing effort and subsequent fish mortality across a lake-rich landscape.
