Seafish Fleet Economic Performance Dataset 2006-2015

Steven Lawrence, Sebastien Metz, Arina Motova

The Seafish fleet economic performance dataset contains financial, economic and operation performance indicators for the period 2006-15. The dataset includes data for approximately 30 UK fleet segments, and has been produced by combining costs and earnings information from vessel accounts (collected as a result of our annual Fleet Survey of vessel owners) with official effort, landings and capacity data for all active UK fishing vessels, which was provided by the UK Marine Management Organisation (MMO). It contains estimates for the years 2006-2014 and an early estimate for 2015 based on official data, 2015 fuel prices and 2014 cost structures.
