Abstract

The objective of FRDC project 2012/021, "Trial and validation of Respondent-Driven Sampling as a cost-effective method for obtaining representative catch, effort, social and economic data from recreational fisheries" was to trial and validate the chain referral sampling method, Respondent Driven Sampling (RDS), for obtaining representative data from specialised ‘hard-to-reach’ components of recreational fisheries. This project aimed to test this new method by undertaking a RDS survey with a population of fishers who were part of a complete licence list frame. The characteristics of the sample (e.g. age, gender) from the RDS survey would then be compared to another survey collected via random stratified sampling drawn from the licence list frame. This would allow comparison of the results between methods to determine if the RDS survey can produce a representative sample of the population.
