Fisheries economics and trade
Poseidon undertook industry consultation with vessel operators and processors to understand the impacts of the landings target. The report found that the impact of requiring vessels to land back to Scotland rather than into Norway resulted in a considerable opportunity cost for the Scottish fleet and the numerous crew and businesses associated with the fleet. Alternative measures were proposed to encourage more Scottish landings. This was presented to the Scottish minister as part of the PO response to a consultation on the economic link.
