    Economic analysis of the UK 15m and over scallop fishing fleet in ICES Area VII

    From 2012, the UK 15m and over king scallop fishing fleet in ICES Area VII has been operating under the Western Waters management regime, which limits the number of annual days at sea a vessel can fish for scallop or queen scallops. Three years into the implementation of the management regime, Seafish has conducted this study which provides an overview of the behaviour of the fleet and provides insights into the profitability of the sector and the factors that drive it.

    Seafish Economic Analysis: UK king scallop dredging sector 2008 - 2016, 2nd Edition, final 2016 data

    In 2015 the Scallop Industry Consultation Group (SICG) raised concerns over declining profits in ICES area 7 (including the English Channel and Irish Sea). In response to these concerns Seafish was asked to conduct an economic analysis of king scallop dredge vessels. This report illustrates the economic and operational performance of UK vessels dependent on king scallops in 2008-2016.

    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.

    Northern Ireland Scallop Larval Dispersal Background Study

    he Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute (AFBI), Seafish and the Northern Ireland (NI) Scallop Association have recently completed a report investigating the optimal areas for scallop reseeding in the Irish Sea. This work was commissioned due to an increase in exploitation of scallops around the NI coastline and a desire by industry to be proactive in enhancing long-term sustainability of stocks. Sites selected through industry engagement as proposed reseeding sites were examined by AFBI scientists to ensure that they met the characteristics required for successful settlement of scallops. Seabed habitat maps were combined to provide information for the full sea area under consideration. Scallop catches from the annual AFBI scallop survey were mapped with the full habitat map to determine the areas where scallops were present and identify the underlying habitat type. This allowed a map to be created which showed the suitable habitat for adult scallops within NI waters. All of the proposed reseeding sites fell within areas of suitable habitat. To examine further characteristics of the proposed sites, a combination of measured and modelled data was used. Salinity, food availability, bed stress (natural physical disturbance of the seabed by wave action and/or tidal currents), particulate inorganic matter, suspended particulate matter, abundance of predators, spawning season, larval dispersal and hydrodynamic models were all considered. The above information was presented to the project steering group, and using the data provided, the steering group selected the most suitable sites for reseeding from the original 13 proposed sites. Three reseeding sites (Whitehead, Drumfad Bay and South Bay) have initially been proposed, with a fourth, Roaring Rock, having potential for any future reseeding plans. The NI Scallop Association will now present the results of this work to DAERA to ask for regulation to assist in the protection of these new areas through a ban on mobile fishing gear.
