Research Report: The Economic Impact of Game and Coarse Angling in Scotland
1. Boundaries of both Unitary Authority and Local Enterprise Company areas were used, as appropriate, to subdivide Scotland into 40 regions. A further 12 regions were subdivisions of the UK. The rest of the world features as one region.
2. CogentSI Ltd, Killylung, Dumfries, DG2 0RL, Scotland. CogentSI can provide estimates of input-output and trade tables for any Unitary Authority or Local Enterprise Company area in Scotland, or combinations thereof. If the distribution of expenditure is known then multipliers for any type of tourist activity in any area can be calculated
3. Details of the construction of regional models are available in the Technical Report
4. Now part of the Scottish Executive Environment and Rural Affairs Department
5. All monetary values are expressed at 2003 prices
6. 77.25 (in 1988 prices), derived from the average of anglers across ten case study rivers and not the whole sample of 2,364 anglers (see page 113 of the Mackay study)
7. The angler day's estimates were derived from a survey of 95 proprietors covering 202 beats across the whole of Scotland.
8. For the purpose of this study Grayling was included in the coarse fish category.

11. The Deloitte and Touche study had some 11,261 'angler days' associated with non-fishing companions.
12. The boundaries of both Unitary Authority and Local Enterprise Company areas were used, as appropriate, to subdivide Scotland into 40 regions. A further 12 regions were subdivisions of the UK. The rest of the world features as one region.
13. The ratio of Table 6.7.2 (output with displacement) to Table 5.4.2 (expenditure with displacement) would produce the same results.
14. It is not appropriate to calculate ratios for these cells.
15. There is no expectation that the ratios in the table should be >1. For example, 30 of angler spending in a petrol station might result in a direct effect of as little as 1, after taking off VAT, fuel duty, value of goods brought into the region (e.g. petrol, newspapers confectionary). There would need to be very strong indirect and induced effects for this kind of spending to generate local output of 30.
16. Mackay Consultants and Deloitte Touche employed multipliers that linked angler expenditure to total regional expenditure.
17. Pure profit or dividend income is assumed to be a leakage from the regional economy.
18. Table 5.4.2 and 6.8.2 would also have produced the results given in Table 6.8.3
