Vessel lists for a number of ports in the Aberdeen, Anstruther and Eyemouth districts. Following our telephone conversation on 16 January 2018 you also asked for the same covering the Peterhead and Fraserburgh districts.
The answer to your question is:
|District||Number of licensed fishing vessels|
We discussed on the telephone whether or not lists of vessels could be provided below district level and instead down to creek level, as indicated in Marine Scotland Compliance's "Districts and Creeks" map.
I have been advised that this is indeed possible, rather than just relying on officers local knowledge as I had first thought. Please advise me if you wish this further detail to be provided and a fresh FOI request can be considered.
