GLASGOW University is undertaking an important study on angling on behalf for the Scottish Executive and is seeking feedback from anyone who fishes or has fished north of the border.

The study seeks to ‘assess the economic contribution’ of angling to the Scottish economy, as well as specific regions within Scotland.
At the moment, policy towards freshwater fisheries has apparently developed and been initiated against a background of very limited information about the economic contribution of angling and this study seeks to redress this situation.
”Many angling groups and other bodies have been calling for this type of work to be undertaken as it could have a potentially significant impact of future fisheries policy development,” said a spokesman.

“Rather crucially, we require the assistance of anglers and are issuing an appeal for anglers to complete an on-line questionnaire.”
