The Fish Protection Officer says that although they have seen increases in natural mortality rates, fishing mortality has decreased since 2015 and is relatively low compared to natural deaths..

Total reported landings in 2019-20 were 3,500 tons compared to 4,700 tons in 2018-2019.

Employment is also below the long-term average set since the mid-1990s, indicating that fewer young fish are produced.
