Marine Volunteer Angler Survey (VAS) –
The Marine Fisheries Division, is seeking marine recreational anglers who will volunteer to participate in the Connecticut Volunteer Angler Survey (VAS) Program. The VAS Program is designed to collect fishing trip and catch information from avid marine recreational (hook and line) anglers who volunteer to record their angling activities via a logbook. VAS anglers contribute valuable fisheries-specific information concerning striped bass, fluke, bluefish, and other important finfish species used in monitoring and assessing fish populations inhabiting Connecticut marine waters. The survey logbook is easy to fill out. Each participating angler is assigned a personal code number for confidentiality and recording instructions are provided on the inside cover of the logbook. Upon completion, simply tape the pre-postage paid logbook, shut and drop it off in the mail. Anglers that send in logbooks are rewarded with a VAS fishing hat and updated results of the program. After all the logbooks are computer entered and error checked, the logbooks are returned to each participant for their own records.
