Burcu Taylan, Hülya Sayğı, Banu Kutlu


This study has been conducted to establish the current state of amateur fisheries performed in the province of Tunceli (Pulumur and Munzur). 95 individuals who were engaged in amateur fisheries in the period of January 2018 – March 2018 in the research zone were chosen randomly and the original data were obtained ensuring their voluntary participation in the 38-item survey. In the specification of the survey magnitude, 4.8% value determined for Europe is used due to its geographical proximity. As a result of the survey carried out with amateur anglers, the distribution of the variables regarding whether they have information about fishing height and numbers were established through the chi-square test and fallacy probability was determined as α = 0.05. As a result, a statistically significant difference was observed in the education variable (χ2:9.434; p:0.009), monthly income (χ2:12.525; p: 0.006), time spent for fisheries (χ2:11.935; p:0.03), target types the fishermen prefer (χ2:14.903; p:0.001) and increase or decrease in the quantity of fish (χ2:11.248; p:0.04), whereas there is significant difference in the other variables when those having information or not about the fishing height and numbers. The research in which the general overview of amateur fisheries is established in the province of Tunceli has been carried out for the first time in the region and is pioneer for the future studies. So, those engaged in amateur fisheries be informed about the issue and it should be performed without harming nature to ensure sustainable fisheries.
