The purpose of the statistic is to reveal the turnover of fish catches landed in Denmark.
Landings statistics include all Danish fishing vessels landings. Statistics on landings of fish are prepared by The Danish Agrifish Agency based on reports for trade in fish, crustaceans and molluscs at vessel level, enriched with data from vessels' logs. For reports from vessels, who sell their catch in other EU Member States, reports are received electronically from the Member State. More than 95 pct. of the total value of the landing is received in the form of on-line reports today.
The database for landing statistics is Danish AgriFish Agency's settlement register.
Landing data is used to manage fishing and quota reporting of Danish fishing etc.
This statistics covers all landings from Danish fishery vessels. Reporting is mandatory and thus the statistics covers all legally reported first-hand trade with fish. Recreative fishery is not included. There is a close cooperation with fishermen and first-hand buyers in relation to validation of data. Annually campaigns are made regarding applying of rules and reporting valid data.
The statistics are published annually.
On the calculated level of aggregation, there is no significant data breach.
