value of salmon to local economies

just read 2003 report of river spey fishery board. very interesting statistics on value of fish to local economy. they estimate by a survey that local benefit is 11,800,000 pounds per annum with 367 jobs. there were 6650 fish caught [70o/o released]. this makes value to local economy approx 1800 pounds per fish-US$3250. does anyone have any local surveys of this nature on either rod caught fish or netted fish.
