Factors affecting the socio-economic and ecological feasibility of a proposed no-take zone (NTZ) in Whitsand Bay (around the UK’s first artificial diving reef) were studied to determine if the area is suitable for protection. A comprehensive survey of recreational divers was carried out, to establish their opinions and support for the proposed NTZ, and two stakeholder groups (local dive charter boats and local seaangling charter boats) were also surveyed to gauge the level of support for protection of the study site.

Our nations’ fisheries is the first comprehensive report on fish communities and fisheries in England and Wales. In publishing details of the abundance of coarse fish,salmon, trout and eels and the performance of the rod and net fisheries that depend upon them, we also highlight key factors that are affecting fisheries.The progress we all make in managing these factors will largely determine what improvements in fish stocks, and hence in fishery values and performance,we can report in future editions.

Existing information about the economic characteristics of sea angling in England and Wales is sparse. This study was established to provide more detailed economic information on sea anglers and sea angling in England and Wales. Specifically, it was set up principally to identify the important local centres for sea angling, its economic contribution both nationally and more locally, and the value of the experience to anglers.

The economic impact of game and coarse angling in Scotland

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.
