Economic analysis of UK vessels dredging for king scallops in ICES Area 7

Since 2012 there is a cap on the annual number of days at sea that 15m and over scallop vessels can dredge in ICES Area 7, as part of the Western Waters Management Regime (WWMR). In response to requests by industry and government, Seafish analysed the economic performance of UK vessels that dredge for king scallops in Area 7. The analysis uses fishing activity and economic data of UK vessels that landed any amount of king scallops from Area 7 during a calendar year from 2008 to 2015.
