Recreational fishing is an important component of the tourism industry and an important component of regional economies around the world. When angling tourists reach threatened freshwater ecosystems, however, there is a risk of degrading the very fishery and landscapes that attracted them, thwarting long-term economic development prospects and reducing biodiversity.

Inland fisheries in England and Wales have high economic and social values. Managing participation to maximise fishery performance is key to maintaining this status. The capital value of fishing rights for migratory salmonid fisheries is €165 million. Coarse fisheries contribute €1030 million to the economy. The central tenet to increasing participation in recreational salmonid fisheries is that an increase in stock size will result in more anglers accessing the fishery.

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.
