Davies, B.B, Pita, C, Lusseau, D and Hunter, C (2010) The value of tourism expenditure related to the East of Scotland bottlenose dolphin population: final report.


It is evident that the economic importance of the bottlenose dolphin population to Scotland’s tourism economy is due to creating a holiday destination focal point, with subsequent spending by a significant number (52,200) of overnight visitors. Sustainable management around the dolphin population should try to ensure that businesses opportunities reliant on boat trips are sensitively developed to prevent potential disturbance to the population, whilst encouraging initiatives related to land-based observation and information activities promoting dolphins around the geographical range of the population.
