Hunters and Anglers: Supporting Our Nation's Economy and Conservation
Hunting and fishing are not simply traditions or hobbies – they are fundamental components of our nation’s economy. Tens of millions of Americans enjoy these activities every year. The money they spend supports everything from major manufacturing industries to small businesses in communities across the country. It also generates hundreds of millions of dollars each year for wildlife management, habitat conservation, and public access.
These economic and conservation benefits plus hundreds of thousands of American jobs all depend on clean water and productive wetlands.
