Provisional Scottish Sea Fisheries Statistics provide an overview of the Scottish fishing fleet, landings by Scottish vessels, fishers employed, vessel numbers and UK quota uptake.
Provisional statistics are published to provide access to data as soon as possible. Due to time lags with regards to the input of landings and sale information, especially for shellfish, provisional statistics may not be complete.
Final Statistics are published in September of the year after which the statistics relate. Final statistics are considered complete and have undergone stringent quality assurance.
Users will be aware that the UK exit from the EU may have an impact on sea fisheries. This impact notice explains that there are no anticipated impacts on the future publication of these statistics.
