Abstract
  • This paper highlights the fishing industry's views on economic impact assessments related to fisheries, and in particular the Scottish Government's assessment accompanying the MPA Consultation. The industry felt this assessment was incomplete, failed to recognise the true impacts on fishermen affected and failed to acknowledge local impacts on communities. We also discuss examples where Economic Assessments have been provided in support of both policy makers and private groups attempting to influence policy in relation to fisheries matters. Recently there has been a tendency for socio-economic data to be presented on a grand scale, which may mask the impacts at a local level, rather than the more appropriate fine detail that should be used in assessing smaller scale proposals, or elements of wider proposals. The implications of these issues for the industry and for policy makers are considered.
