Danish Fisheries Agency

We support growth through a green transition in fisheries by providing funds for the development of sustainable fisheries and aquaculture through the European Fisheries Fund.

At the same time, we perform inspections to ensure that the fish stocks in the Danish waters are sustained and that fishing does not take place in specially protected areas with vulnerable nature or stocks of fish.
