Sociological Study of Fishing Themes Commonly Sought by Recreational Anglers
Mohd Azim Bin Mohd Khatib

A total of 100 anglers were successfully surveyed in this study and all of them claimed to be recreational anglers. There are 17 fishing themes that were exploited in this study. The results exhibited that the anglers in this study agreed with 14 fishing themes that were proposed to them, for which they registered a mean agree level of 4.09 to 5.33 on a scale of 1 (completely disagree) to 7 (completely agree). However, the anglers disagreed with 3 fishing themes where their mean agree level ranged from 3.37 to 3.95. Most anglers in this study did not agree in spending time with family while fishing, selling all fish that had been caught as source of income and releasing back all fish that had been caught as satisfaction in fishing. For future study, the other researchers should use the same variables in different recreation things as to make the results more accurate and precise.
