Tourist anglers spent €89.9 million in Ireland in 2008, a marine leisure conference in Co Waterford heard recently.
The importance of angling to the Irish economy was highlighted at the Rising Tide seminar in New Ross, an event focused on developing historical connections between Ireland and Newfoundland in Canada in the areas of fisheries, development and coastal tourism.
Speakers noted the "strong maritime tradition" along the south-east coast, the potential of the Waterford Estuary as a gateway to the inland waterways, and opportunities for development along the coast to tie in with next year's visit of the Tall Ships.
Minister of State for Fisheries, Sean Connick TD, also announced funding of €156,000 for Wexford harbours in tandem with Wexford County Council's allocation of €52,000.
