The purpose of this report is to present the results of a survey, undertaken by the provincial Wildlife Branch, of all licensed trappers in British COlumbia. The need for the survey arose from the relatively limited amount of information that is available about trapping in the province. The primary intention of the survey was to determine the economic value of trapping in British Columbia during the 1986-1987 season. This was done to obtain a more complete picture of the value of the province's wildlife resources and to be able to better represent trapping interests in land use allocation decisions. In addition, the survey was to provide a better understanding of some characteristics of trapping in British Columbia.
