The Scottish food exporting industry was promised friction-free access to European markets after Brexit.
Its most valuable export, shellfish, goes almost entirely to France, Spain and the Netherlands.

European aquaculture assumes significant losses due to the pandemic that are putting the viability of many companies at risk. In Spain, those harvested in 2020 are judged as "serious losses" due to hotel closures and the drop in tourism.
They also noticed low prices due to imports of fish from Turkey and Greece, or salmon from Norway. The aquaculture employer Apromar released a balance of the sector, which highlights the impact of the coronavirus and the "unstable scenario" for 2021.
Spanish fish companies maintained their activity during the confinement, as an “essential sector”, but “the operational complications and the volatility of the markets have been difficult challenges to overcome”, according to Apromar.

Describing the current situation as a ‘full-blown crisis,’ Scottish Seafood Association chief executive Jimmy Buchan has told the UK and Scottish governments to get a grip, and fast, ‘before severe and lasting damage is done.’
Two weeks into 2021 and with little sign of improvement, he commented that there has been a lot of direct engagement between the industry and ministers and civil servants in recent days, and plenty of soothing words about resolving ‘teething troubles.’
‘But these are not minor impediments to trade. The industry in Scotland has basically ground to a halt and businesses that employ hundreds of people in communities around our coastline are losing money. In some cases they are close to going under,’ he said.
