Abstract [en]

The interest in sports fishing and the number of enterprises involved is a growing phenomenon in Sweden. According to statistics from Statistics Sweden, about 1.6 million of all Swedish residents has an interest in fishing and about 10 percent of all international trips are related to fishing tourism. This indicates that there is a potential to develop fishing tourism in Swedish rivers.

The aim of this study was to explore the fishing tourism around the salmon fishery and to identify any action that has been taken to improve conditions for the salmon in the river Göta älv, in the area of the Lilla Edet and Trollhättan municipalities. The information in this study has been collected from literature and interviews with SFK Laxen and Trollhättan Municipality.

Göta älv is, among other rivers, regulated for hydropower production with four hydropower dams blocking the migration routes for the salmon. The main measurements that have been taken to facilitate salmon migration and improve conditions for salmon fishing are fish ladders at the power stations, and the addition of gravel to create spawning grounds. However, many projects that would improve the potential for fishing tourism are still waiting to be approved or has been denied. The result of this study has clarified the current situation for salmon and salmon fishing in Göta älv, and make some suggestions for further development of fishing tourism in the river.
