UK seafood processing sector labour 2017

Hazel Curtis, Marta Moran Quintana, Kirsten Milliken

There was anecdotal evidence that the UK seafood processing sector relied heavily on workers from other EU countries. Hence, reliable information on the nationality of the workforce in the seafood processing sector was considered necessary to inform discussions on the new relationship of the UK with the EU. Seafish conducted a survey of UK seafood processing companies in early 2017 to gather information about financial performance and the nationality of their workforce. The workforce nationality results are presented in this report. The majority of UK seafood processing sites surveyed employ foreign workers from other EU countries. These workers represent approximately 42% of the workforce in the surveyed sites. Region and site size appear to be major factors influencing the nationality mix of the workforce.
