ABSTRACT. The aim of the work was to develop a ranking method and then to rank the attractiveness of recreational fisheries in selected fishery zones exploited by the Mazovian Department of the Polish Angling Association. Data on pressure and catches obtained by 2,647 anglers from 17 zones were used in the work. The angling attractiveness of the fishing grounds was evaluated using a ranking scale by assigning to each value in a given category its appropriate rank. These categories were the criteria used to determine the attractiveness of the fishing grounds. Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient was used to choose categories that were awarded by exploring their correlation with the overall ranking and the dependencies among the chosen categories were assessed.
Keywords: attractiveness of recreational fisheries, evaluation categories, ranking
