Using a case study of recreational angling, the A. shows how fish in English rivers and lakes are counted and anglers act as lay or amateur knowledge-producers in the state's metrological knowledge-practices. She shows how, to support environmental measurement, the state manages not only the environment and fish, but also anglers as lay knowledge-producers, using both regulation and economic incentives.
