Abstract

This paper reports the results of a count data travel cost model for estimating the demand and economic value of salmon angling in Co. Donegal, Ireland. Angling quality, age and nationality were found to affect angling demand, while estimated consumer surplus per angler per day was approximately IR£138 based on a truncated negative binomial model allowing for endogenous stratification.
