The Blue Economy in the Highlands and Islands: Towards a Regional Delivery Plan

  • Year: 2022-2023
  • Client: Highlands and Islands Enterprise
  • Delivered By: Ekosgen

Ekosgen was commissioned by Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE) to develop an evidence base of growth opportunities in the blue economy. 

Our team analysed the current performance of constituent sectors – including marine and offshore energy, tourism, decommissioning, marine transport, aquaculture and fisheries – as well as, crucially, identifying opportunities within the global marketplace. 

We provided recommendations on the strategic development of the blue economy as a whole, and strategic priorities for HIE and its partners. The report and its findings will inform the development of a Regional Delivery Plan for the blue economy to help target resource where it can have the greatest impact.
