Seafish Fleet Economic Performance Dataset

The Seafish fleet economic performance dataset contains financial, economic and operation performance indicators for the period 2005-14. 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 2005-2013 and an early estimate for 2014 based on official data, 2014 fuel prices and 2013 cost structures.
