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.

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.

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.
