Scotland's Marine Economic Statistics 2021

Statistics on the economic contributions of Scotland’s marine sectors in 2021. Includes a time series of Gross Value Added (GVA), turnover and employment for marine sectors. The supporting documents include: additional tables in an excel file and a pdf version of the publication

Other marine economic sectors

The information provided in this report is based on available, validated economic data sources. As relevant data on other marine economy sectors become available we will add them to this report.

Recreational sea angling is not included separately in this publication. But, may be covered within other sectors, such as marine tourism or renting and leasing of water equipment.

Marine renewable energy (wind, wave and tidal) has continued to grow in Scotland. We are still working on calculating GVA for offshore wind and sourcing economic information for wave and tidal energy.

Seaweed harvesting is a potential addition to future reports, when data and appropriate methods have been developed.
