(1) Main species are those where the total value landed into the UK or by UK vessels abroad was £2m or more in 2015.
(2) The reduction in value for some demersal species in 2014 is due to a lack of sales notes from foreign vessel landings in to the UK and does not reflect a genuine decrease in the value.
