Fishing industry in England

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The fishing industry in England covers the fish processing industry and fishing trawler companies that fish around England.

Geographical spread of ports

Important English seafishing ports include:

History

The fishing industry in England was once much larger than it is today. As a response to declining stocks, the Common Fisheries Policy imposed quotas on the amount of catch permitted to be brought ashore. This prevented a collapse in the industry and cod has since been reclassified as sustainable.[1]

In the context of the UK fishing industry

Updated statistics from the UK's Marine Management Organisation on the UK fishing sector show that UK vessels landed 724 thousand tonnes of sea fish in 2017, with a value of £980 million. Scottish vessels accounted for 64 per cent of the quantity of landings by the UK fleet while English vessels accounted for 28 per cent.[2]

Fish processing

Fish processing companies are based in Grimsby (Young's Bluecrest), Whitby (Whitby Seafoods) and Lowestoft (Birds Eye).

Organisations

Regulation

The Marine and Fisheries Agency controls the sea fisheries legislation in England and Wales.

Industry organisations

The National Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby displays how the fishing industry in England once was. Also in Grimsby is the Sea Fish Industry Authority (SeaFish) which promotes the consumption of fish, and conducts research for the fishing and fish-processing industry.

The Fishermen's Mission is a Christian charity supporting fishermen and their families within the UK.
