The National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation (Survey) has been conducted since 1955 and is one of the oldest and most comprehensive continuing recreation surveys. The purpose of the Survey is to gather information on the number of anglers, hunters, and wildlife-watching participants (formerly known as nonconsumptive wildlife-related participants) in the United States. Information also is collected on how often these recreationists participate and how much they spend on their activities.

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.

Public attitudes to angling 2010

Author: 
Simpson, D. and Mawle, G.W.

2010

Angling is a popular activity contributing to the economy of rural areas, and the well-being of society. But how many people in England and Wales are interested in angling? Do teenagers still want to catch real fish ? Over the past decade, annual sales of Environment Agency rod licences for England and Wales have increased by 35 percent, from 1.09 million in 2000/1 to 1.47 million in 2009/10. Does this reflect an increase in the number of anglers or are more anglers buying licences? More importantly, what is the potential to increase the number of anglers and licence sales in the future ?

The economic impact of game and coarse angling in Scotland

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

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.
