1 Gross Value Added (GVA) is a measure of the economic value generated by an industry or business. See the References and Glossary for details.

2 Scottish Annual Business Statistics (SABS) provides information on businesses' employment, turnover, purchases, approximate gross value added and labour costs. www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Business/SABS

3 The European Commission’s Data Collection Framework (DCF) establishes a European Community framework for the collection, management and use of data in the fisheries sector and support for scientific advice regarding the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

4 The difference in GVA estimated using SABS and the Marine Scotland Aquaculture survey (along with CEFAS financial data) was over 100% in 2015. See Annex B: Methodology and source data for a discussion of this variation.

5 Scottish Marine Regions were introduced by The Scottish Marine Regions Order 2015. The boundaries identify the areas for preparing and adopting regional marine plans. See References section.
