Dansk fiskeri efter Brexit
Københavns Universitet har netop udgivet rapporten ”The economic importance of the fishery in the exclusive economic zones of the United Kingdom, Norway and the Faroe Islands for Danish fisheries in 2016, 2017 and 2018” for IFRO. Rapporten beskriver bl.a. den danske landingsværdi for disse områder og konsekvenserne af en eventuel dansk udelukkelse fra disse områder.
- Danish fishermen take 30% of their total landings value in the UK-EEZ and 14% in the NOR-EEZ while the FRO-EEZ is of only minor importance.
Fishing in the Exclusive Economic Zone of the United Kingdom
- Of the Danish fleet fishing in the UK-EEZ, 36 vessels in 2016, 50 in 2017 and 44 in 2018 took more than 15% of their landings value in the UK-EEZ (named the UK-15% vessels). Together these vessels account for 98% of the landings value and 99% of the landings weight taken on average over2016-2018 in the UK-EEZ
- The most important species caught in the UK-EEZ are herring, mackerel and sandeel, which account for 81% of the landings value and 83% of the landings weight for the UK-15% vessels
- The UK-15% vessels land 62% of their landings value and 75% of their landings weight from the UK-EEZ in Denmark, especially in the harbours of Skagen, Thyborøn, Hirtshals and Hanstholm
- If the UK-EEZ is closed the Danish UK-15% vessels will lose 61% of their total landings value, corresponding to a reduction of 81% in gross profit and 91% in net profit, assuming that the effort used in the UK-EEZ is not utilised in other fishing areas.”
