Abstract: Abstract:The objective of this paper is to investigate the anglers' willing-to-pay (WTP) for the surf/rocks fishing in the Northeastern coast of Taiwan, which is under the authority of Northeast Coast National Scenic Area Administration (NCNSAA). For conservation the herbivorous fish, the Wildlife Conservation Law regulates the parties who wish to harvest fish within the area shall register, report, and provide the record about the number ofspecies caught. They shall also pay for a certain fishing fee. The anglers' survey is conducted in this research in order to establish a Tobit model to estimate angler's WTP. Results show that angler's WTP for fishing fee per day is positively related to the individual's years of experience of fishing, cost spent during each fishing trip, and personal income, but negatively related to angler's age, fishing frequency in a year, the time duration of each fishing trip. The results will provide NCNSAA, local government, and the Council of Agriculture certan basis for regulating the fishing fee in the Northeastern Coast of Taiwan in the near future. According to the total number of anglers in 200 I, the total fishing fee is estimated to be between 7 to 20 million NT dollars depending on the level of fishing fee. The revenue from the fishing feewill provide the fund for the authority to conserve the surf/rock fish resource.
