'The Business of Fishing' aims to improve everyone's understanding of the business aspects of the UK fishing industry by showing some of the day-to-day and strategic challenges that fishing vessel owners face and how they overcome them. The video shows the industry through the eyes of four different vessel owners from different fishing sectors and regions of the UK. The focus is on running a successful business while taking care of the fish stocks and the natural environment.
The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) is a long term marine data initiative from the European Commission Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE) underpinning its Marine Knowledge 2020 strategy. EMODnet is a consortium of organisations assembling European marine data, data products and metadata from diverse sources in a uniform way.

Because seafood is an important part of our diet and provides us with proteins, essential fatty oils, and vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy lifestyle. Choose sustainable fish, protect this valuable resource and discover new tastes. Then, add value to your fish while protecting the environment, keeping your business and our oceans’ ecosystems sustainable. Make a difference by eating, buying, or selling sustainable seafood and help ensure future generations have the same love story we have with our fish today.
The seafood industry is becoming increasingly globalized. Between one third and 40% of all fish produced is now traded internationally, making fish and fisheries products one of the most traded food commodities in the world. This growth has important implications for those in developing regions, as much of what is consumed in the major developed markets is produced and processed in developing countries before being exported.
