The EU is the destination for 94 per cent of the Falkland Islands’ exports of fisheries products, all of which land in Spain. In 2017, 288,373 tonnes of fish (with a customs value of €139 million) were imported into Spain from the Falkland Islands. Two thirds of the Falklands’ meat exports go to the UK, and the rest to the EU27. In 2016, the EU27 also accounted for approximately 75 per cent of the Falkland Islands’ wool exports.
