The Scottish Government is committed to evidence-based policy which can contribute to sustainable economic growth. The Scottish fishing industry makes a significant contribution to our many coastal communities and the more we understand the circumstances and pressures which the industry faces the better we are able to respond to support them.

All industries rely upon a prosperous and engaged workforce to remain viable and in the fishing industry, with all the challenges that it faces, this is all the more important. I am delighted therefore to see the results of this new survey which has collected fishing industry data on a diverse range of employment-related indicators. This allows us to further understand the importance and challenges of this industry by shining a light on the most important element of the industry - the men and women who work in it.
