Summary: The Spanish fishing fleet is the biggest in the EU, serving the very strong domestic market for seafood. However, the fishing industry does not contribute greatly to Spain's GDP - around 0.5%. This, however, is more a reflection of the recent rapid growth of the Spanish economy as a whole than of the significance of the fishing industry per se. Some coastal areas are highly dependent on fishing by EU standards - notably Galicia, on the Atlantic coast of Spain, which has a fisheries dependence of 4.1%, one of the highest in the EU.
