Economic impact of recreational sea angling in Scotland

Author: 
Radford, A., Riddington, G. and Gibson, H.
Date: 
July 2009

Previously, very little was known about the scale of sea angling, its distribution across Scotland, or the economic impact of sea anglers’ expenditure. In these circumstances, it is possible that sea angling could have been over-looked when fisheries, tourism and coastal developments were being considered. The Scottish Government has sought to rectify this by commissioning this assessment of sea angling and its contribution to employment and income both in Scotland as a whole and its regions.

Non-residents' demographic characteristics, behaviour and attitudes towards salmon angling in Scotland

The benefits of angling may be assessed from a variety of perspectives, yet surprisingly few contain the essentials upon which more strategic marketing planning might be developed. A sound case, in terms of the monetary significance of angling tourism to the Scottish economy, has been widely recognised in the economic impact studies of Radford (2004, 2009). Yet to date, very little is known about the essential, more individual, aspects of visiting anglers to Scotland, if associated benefits are to be capitalised upon.

The economic impact of game and coarse angling in Scotland

Author: 
Radford, A., Riddington, G., Anderson, J. and Gibson, H.
Date: 
2004

In August 2001, the Green Paper, Scotland’s Freshwater Fish and Fisheries: Securing Their Future, pointed to the lack of useful data quantifying the economic position of fresh water angling, whether on a national or a regional basis. Against this background, the Scottish Executive contracted the consultants to estimate the economic contribution to Scotland of fresh water angling. The principal aim was to analyse the impact of angler expenditure on output income and employment.
