EPA/ U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Health Effects Laboratory. Limited-contact water recreation activities are popular in the United States. An estimated 71 million people participate in fishing, 52 million in motor boating, million in canoeing, million in rowing, and million in kayaking (Cordell et al.
