||<p>The average value of fish landed by UK and Other Member State vessels from the
UK Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) each year is £1,184 million (~£1.2 billion), this
represents 38.4% of the total value the UK and Other Member State fleets land from
the Northeast Atlantic sea area.</p><p> </p><p>In 2017, the UK exported £1.9bn (460,000
tonnes) of fish and seafood products globally, with over 70% of exports to the EU.
The UK is a net importer of fish, importing over 730,000 tonnes of fish worth £3.1bn,
with the majority of imports originating outside of the EU.</p><p> </p><p>The Marine
Management Organisation publishes trade analysis in their annual UK Sea Fisheries
Statistics publication, which can be found at:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/uk-sea-fisheries-annual-statistics-report-2017"
</p><p>These statistics include the outward movement of fish and seafood products
produced by businesses in the UK, plus goods which, after importation to the UK, are
then exported. The statistics include fish caught by foreign vessels and landed into
the UK; fish caught by the UK fleet and landed into foreign ports are excluded. It
is not possible to discern the origin of fish from UK trade statistics, or from this
the proportion consumed in the UK originating from fish caught in UK waters.</p>
