Sea trout (Salmo trutta) is the most popular species for recreational fisheries on Gotland. This study shows the economic value of sea trout for the island and reveals the roles of different actors. A survey was conducted in the spring of 2008 among recreational fishermen of three types; household fishermen and sports fishermen (residents and tourists). The questions posed revealed that the tourists spend most money per kg caught fish and catch least fish, while the opposite goes for the household fishermen. The recreational fishery has a bigger turnover per caught fish than the commercial. An estimate was made that 5.8-8.4 tonnes of sea trout wascaught by the recreational fishery in 2007 and the turnover was around 3-5 million SEK. The socioeconomic value of sea trout should justify a higher input from the society to manage and enhance sea trout stocks.
