The survey bolsters the fact that fishing and wildlife conservation are important to most Oklahomans. In fact, last year when "Sports Illustrated" magazine asked their readers their favorite sport to play, fishing came in number one ahead of all others, including golf, base- ball and swimming. The surveys are supported by an unrelated report on fishing sta- tistics published by the American Sportfishing Associati00. The Details Our Experienced Officers Is Your Investment Safe?

Here in Oklahoma, fishing statistics support the national trend. According to the report, more than 44 million Americans fish - 774,254 of which fished in Oklahoma. The report shows that an impres- sive $484 million in retail sales were generated by Oklahoma's anglers, which rippled through the economy to generate $992 report, "Sportfishing in erica: million in economic output for The Oklahoma fishing indus- try supports over 11,000 jobs and those workers earned $245 mil- lion in salaries and wages. Fishing-related purchases in Oklahoma generated $27.5 mil- lion in state tax revenues and $25 million in federal income tax. Fishing also greatly supports our nation's conservation efforts through the Sport Fish Restora- tion Program. Special federal taxes on fishing gear and motor- boat fuels channel hundreds of millions of anglers' dollars toward state fish and wildlife conservation and recreation programs each year. The American Sporffishing Association's analysis is based on data from the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife- Associated Recreation, con- ducted every five years on behalf of the International Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. The survey data is collected by the Census Bureau and complied by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The full report is avail- able online from the American Sportfishing Association at www.asafishing.org/content/ statistics/economic. The 2004 Oklahoma Social Indicator Survey of adults, age 18 and over, was conducted by the Bureau for Social Research (BSR) at Oklahoma State Uni- versity. A total of 1,221 telephone interviews of randomly selected Oklahoma residents was com- pleted in November 2004.
