Scottish Sea Fisheries Statistics is a National Statistics publication produced by the Marine Analytical Unit (MAU) in Marine Scotland to provide detailed information on the Scottish fishing industry. The statistics presented in this publication include the tonnage and value of all landings of sea fish and shellfish by Scottish vessels, all landings into Scotland, the rest of the UK and abroad; and the size and structure of the Scottish fishing fleet and employment on Scottish vessels. Data on landings by other UK vessels and landings into the UK is also provided.
All landings tonnages are given in terms of live weight equivalent, overall financial values are provided nominal (not adjusted for inflation) and year on year percentage changes in financial values are calculated at 2019 prices to adjust for inflation. All tables presented here and in previous publications are available for download from the Scottish Sea Fisheries Statistics website (see Annex 3 for the link).
Tables on method of disposal and vessel numbers by main fishing method have been removed from this publication. Further explanation can be found in Annex 1.
