Conflict puts £20m Scottish fish market in jeopardy
The effects of the war in Ukraine are stretching as far as the Scottish fishing industry, as it faces the loss of lucrative exports.
No matter which camp สมัครสมาชิก slotxo you play, After the game has been won by the jackpot, change the game immediately.
Millions of pounds worth of mackerel and herring cannot be exported due to the conflict, and there are also new tariffs on Russian white fish.
Herring and mackerel weighing about 12,000 tonnes is shipped from Scotland to Ukraine and Belarus every year.
The war means it cannot arrive, putting a market worth about £20m at risk.
Peterhead in Aberdeenshire is the biggest white fish port in Europe.
At fish and freezing firm Lunar, lorries should be taking mackerel to Ukraine, however they are not able to get through.
Pallets of fish are piled high inside a cold store at -20C.
Lunar general manager Sinclair Banks said it was an uncertain time.
"At this point in time there are challenges to face, in terms of what do we do with product that is reserved for Ukraine," he told BBC Scotland.
"Do we decide that market is now too uncertain to supply, but then there are humanitarian issues.
"The difficulty is deciding whether you hold that stock hoping that things improve and the customers that are in the Ukraine are able to take the product.
"There is also the possibility that government could intervene along with the Ukrainian government and find a way of entry into Ukraine, for what is a vital food source for the Ukrainian people.
"They need to eat."
