Multi-year Fleet Economic Performance Dataset Published

03 April 2013

UK - Seafish has published the multi-year fleet economic performance dataset. The dataset contains financial, economic and operational performance indicators for approximately 30 UK fleet segments for the period 2005-2012.

The dataset has been produced by combining costs and earnings information collected from vessel accounts contributed by vessel owners to the annual Seafish UK Fleet Survey with official effort, landings and capacity data for all active UK fishing vessels provided by the UK Marine Management Organisation (MMO).

Seafish received many requests for this information or analyses based on these data from fisheries researchers, industry representatives, fisheries managers and the media.

Seafish hopes that by publishing this data in an accessible format it will increase the numbers who use it regularly in their work so that ultimately fisheries management and research will be better informed as a result.
