Coronavirus (COVID-19): marine sectors - business survey

Survey developed and carried out in order to understand the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on Scottish aquaculture businesses, sea fisheries businesses and recreational fishing businesses.

4. Caveats

  • It is important to notice the sample sizes when referring to any survey results.
  • Results from the survey are unweighted, with each business assigned the same weight regardless of turnover, size or industry.
  • As stakeholders opt-in to complete the survey, self-selection bias may be present. Therefore, responses are illustrative and they should be treated with caution as results reflect the characteristics of those who responded and not necessarily the wider business population.
