Abstract: The 2013 Economic Report on the European Union (EU) fish processing industry provides a comprehensive overview of the latest information available on the structure and economic performance of the sector. The report has been produced by fisheries economists from the JRC and a group of economic experts convened under the Scientific, Technical and Economic Committee for Fisheries (STECF). The data used to compile all the various analyses contained within the report were collected under the frameworks of the data collection framework (DCF); cf. Council regulation (European Commission (EC) No 199/2008 of 25th February 2008). The fish processing sector in the EU had appr. 3,500 companies with fish processing as main activity that accounted for around 29.4 thousand million Euros of turnover and more than 6 thousand million Euros of Gross Added Value (GVA) in 2011. The fish processing industry provided employment to around 100 thousand people in the whole of Europe. The available data suggests a deterioration of the economic performance over the years. In 2011 GVA and net profit generated by the fish processing industry (for which data exists) were respectively 2% and 7% less than in 2008. Compared to 2010 both indicators fell significantly (-10% GVA and -30% net profit). However, there are differences between countries as some report improving indicators while others report decreasing numbers. On a first look at 2012/13 compared to 2010/11 many experts report a similar development, in some countries the situation improved in others not.
