Other Media | FishFarmer: Figures reveal Scottish salmon is UK’s biggest fresh food export
Wednesday, August 17, 2022
New HMRC figures have shown that Scottish salmon is the UK’s biggest fresh food export but the sector is facing continued challenges following Covid and Brexit.
International sales of Scottish salmon were valued at £280million in the first half of 2022, with France accounting for more than half of the total. However, this was down by around 8 per cent compared to 2021, across both EU sales and non-EU sales.

Dutch fishing vessel ARM 18 Joris Senior struck anchored tanker Golden Daisy at Ijmuiden Anchorage, Netherlands, at around 0035 UTC Sep 29, according to Netherlands Coastguard. The 30-year old ARM 18 sustained damages, but managed to return to home port under own power.
The 2021-built, 505-foot tanker registered in Hong Kong and operated by Seacon Shipping Group of China suffered an above the waterline gash. Initial reports indicated that the tanker was leaking oil from the gash and the Coastguard dispatched airplanes and a patrol boat along with an oil spill control vessel. The investigation determined that the tanker’s portside wing tank had been holed when the vessel was struck resulting in the gash about three feet above the waterline. The authorities are reporting that a small oil leak from the tanker has been stopped while they continue to investigate.
The Coastguard’s patrol vessel Osprey is standing by the tanker which remains in the anchorage but they are reporting that the vessel is in no danger.
