We are devoted to produce robust insights and recommendations for sustainable recreational fisheries. We take an inter- and transdisciplinary research approach, conceptualising recreational fisheries as coupled social-ecological system. We built bridges among fisheries ecology, behavioural ecology, fisheries evolution and applied social and economic studies, and study angler attitudes and behaviours in addition to fish population dynamics, fish behavioural ecology and fisheries evolution. Our practically oriented research is based on profound theoretical and analytical frameworks, employing both empirical and modelling approaches in both laboratories and field settings. We cooperate with a range of leading universities and groups in Germany and abroad. The stakeholders we work with include angling clubs, angler associations, fisheries agencies and the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations.
