Details

Thirty-three separate assessments were produced of the dependency of regions on the spending of anglers fishing for coarse fish, trout, salmon and sea trout. Estimates were also categorised by types of surface water, that is, rivers, stillwaters and canals.

Assessments were made for the nine Government Office Regions of England; Wales; and for England and Wales as a whole. For each of the 33 region/fish species combinations, the study estimated the economic activity supported by each species as well as the potential economic impact of their loss. Among the parameters estimated were:

  • total annual income in the form of wages, profits and income from self-employment accruing to households − this is called gross value added (GVA);
  • total employment (measured in full-time job equivalents (FTEs);
  • GVA generated per pound of angler expenditure;
  • angler expenditure necessary to generate one FTE;
  • GVA generated per angler day;
  • FTEs per thousand angler days.
