Landings of fish

The purpose of the statistic is to reveal the turnover of fish catches for the Danish fishing vessels and total catches landed in Denmark.

Statistical presentation

Landings statistics include all Danish fishing vessels landings. Statistics on landings of fish are prepared by The Danish Fisheries Agency based on reports for trade in fish, crustaceans and molluscs at vessel level, enriched with data from vessels' logs. For reports from Danish 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.
