Economy V Conservation

WillieGunn. Presumably the fact that there is no Sunday fishing in Scotland is an additional benefit to conservation. The interesting question as far as I am concerned is this : Just taking the Spey as an example, the fishery board have stated that the benefit to the local economy is "some 50m and 50 full time jobs per annum" How much do you think these figures would increase if Sunday fishing was allowed ?
