The purpose of this report is to analyse developments in the Portuguese fish processing industry from the 1960s to the present. In this period, Portugal has undergone tremendous political and macroeconomic changes. While Portugal used to be nearly self sufficient in the supply of fish, the country has become a net importer of fish. These changes have also affected fish processing. Moreover, the development of this industry has been promoted in several different ways, and Portugal has now also become an important exporter to several countries. The purpose of this report is to highlight and analyse these developments. In a sense, it is an extension of Bjørndal et al., (2015), who analysed the development in Portuguese fisheries from the 1960s to the present.
