The Department of Primary Industries, Water and Environment estimated over 10 years ago that, by applying national averages to Tasmania, the likely value of tackle, clothes and boats owned by Tasmanian salt water fishers was around $145m, with an annual expenditure of $49m.

In 1990-91, the Tasmanian fresh water angling industry was worth $28 million per year. However, fishing was not an expensive recreation for most since 47% of fishers spent less than $100 a year on their interest (Participation in Sporting and Physical Recreational Activities, Tasmania - Cat. no. 4175.6).
