Socio-Economic Studies

EAA statement: Many of the studies we collected are not comparable in time or from one country to another. Terms, definitions and methodology used are often different.

Europe urgently needs a pan-European study on recreational angling done every fifth year as it happens in e.g. the US and Canada.

Therefore the EAA worked out a proposal for a RECFISH project, which could deliver such a study. But funding is needed. The cost is estimated 2 mill euro, which is 400,000 per annum - in fact a very small amount when shared by EU's 28 Member States. For some Member States a pan-European study might not present much of a new cost at all as they would only need to adjust their ongoing or future surveys to the RECFISH frame, timeset and methodology.
