Other Media | EuropaAzul: Denmark fears further reductions in cod fishing that will make this sector unfeasible

DENMARK
Tuesday, June 23, 2020

Large reductions in quotas for cod and other key species present major challenges for the Danish fishing industry next year, according to the president of the Danish Fishermen's Association, Svend-Erik Andersen. The fishermen's representative claims that ‘with these Danish fishing quotas, there is a possibility of a financial storm in the coming year. Danish fisheries will be strongly affected financially with quota reductions, especially for cod in all waters, "said Svend-Erik Andersen, President of the Danish Fishermen's Association.

The expectation is that the Danish fishing industry will be under financial pressure next year, with quota reductions in cod in the North Sea, Skagerrak, Kattegat and in the Baltic Sea, where heavy losses in turnover are forecast for the industry every quarter.
