Quay Issues

Quay Issues is a magazine for the fishing industry and tells some of the stories unearthed during our annual Fleet Survey. Quay Issues looks at some of the challenges facing the industry and the creative and innovative approaches fishing vessel owners around the country are taking to overcome them.

During our annual Fleet Survey our researchers speak to hundreds of individual vessel owners at ports around the country. The primary purpose of these interviews is to seek permission to access financial data.

However, at the same time our researchers hear countless individual stories about the challenges and opportunities vessel owners face in the day to day running of their business. Quay Issues has been produced to share these stories.


Our first two editions of Quay Issues were hugely successful with over 10,000 copies distributed to industry. Both are available to download at the foot of this page.  


Issue 4 - Available Now!

We've also created a number of filmed case studies intended to allow some of the participants to tell their own stories directly. All our filmed case studies can be viewed on our YouTube Channel.
