Database from citizen science project "Fangstjournalen"
Upon registration participants are encouraged to fill out entries that support with information about demographics (postal code, gender, age) and angling characteristics (e.g. experience, preferred fishing types, importance of angling as a hobby). This information combined with GPS of fishing sites can provide information about travel patterns. See CSV file for more information about data that is being collected.
