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.

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.
