Danish Vessels by Regions, Harbour, Unit and Type of Fish

The purpose of the statistic is to reveal the turnover of fish catches landed in Denmark.

Statistical presentation

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.
