Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The dual purposes of this study were to define which problems that may be the cause for the probable decreasing stock of sea trout in the river Em, situated in the South Eastern parts of Sweden, and also to find out how the decreasing catch of sea trout affects the sport fishing tourism in this river. Specific questions were: What is the reason for the decreasing stock of sea trout in river Em (I) and how is it possible to solve or lower the impact of these problems (II)? How does the decreasing catch of sea trout in the river Em affect the sportfishing tourists (III)? The study is based mainly on data from a survey and already existing literature but also some parts at discussions with people who know the river Em well. The survey was distributed partly by the World Wide Web and partly shared with people along the riverside at Em and Fliseryds SFK. The results clearly show that a strong majority of the respondents thinks that the fishing for sea trout in river Em is worse now than before, but 94 % of the respondents still wants to come back again in the future. This might have an explanation in the significance of the history and atmosphere at Em, where most of the respondents to the survey are fishing. Despite obvious problems with for example hydro, land use and overfishing on the coast, people still want to visit Em while the visitors to other parts of the river decrease in numbers.
