The MMO has opened an online survey to gather the views of people who use its annual fisheries statistics.

It is seeking feedback to inform production of the 2015 statistics which are due for publication on 29 September 2016.

The annual fisheries statistics provide a broad picture of the fishing industry and its operations. They include a range of information such as on the structure and activity of the UK fishing industry and imports and exports of fish products.

The statistics are used by a variety of organisations including in the fishing industry, retail and the media.

The MMO is committed to ensuring the publication meets the needs of users and is as accessible as possible. Feedback received as part of the survey will be reviewed and a summary of the results and changes identified will be published at a later date.

The survey is anonymous and being carried out online. Completing it should take approximately 5 minutes.
