Denmark is Home to Solutionsfor Sustainable Fishing of the Future

Danish suppliers to the fishing industry will come together with innovative solutions for more sustainable fishing when skippers, suppliers, ship owners, and shipyards from all over the world visit DanFish International 2023 in Aalborg, Denmark

Denmark aspires become a world leader in sustainable fishing. This is the ambition of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries of Denmark, which has currently multiple pools available for the green transition of fisheries and aquaculture. For instance, DKK 84.6 million is allocated for the green transition of fisheries. A transition that corresponds directly to the goals of reducing Denmark’s CO2 emissions.
The green solutions already exist. Denmark is a pioneer when it comes to the sustainable transformation of the fishing industry, and the sustainable solutions must be spread globally to help move the international fishing industry in a greener and more sustainable direction. Therefore, sustainability is also the major theme when more than 80 Danish companies gather at the Pavilion of Denmark at DanFish International 2023 in Aalborg.

“Danish technology suppliers are leading the way when it comes to sustainable solutions. For many years, the subcontractors have collaborated with fishermen, ship owners and shipyards to find the best and most sustainable solutions that meet the demand in the industry and the increasing regulatory requirements we see. This collaboration has led to the best solutions that the global fishing industry also demands,” says Martin Winkel Lilleøre, Head of Fish Tech at Danish Export Association.

DanFish International is visited by fishermen, skippers, ship owners and shipyards from all over the world. With more than 80 exhibitors at the Pavilion of Denmark, the exhibitors cover the industry from sustainable fishing gear and components for processing plants in the fishing industry both on board and on land, services for the fishing industry, pumping systems and a range of energy-saving and environmentally friendly solutions.

“The Danish fishing industry and technology suppliers have a good reputation globally, and together at DanFish we will be highlighting the partnerships across the industry that are so important for us to have created this position. This also means that guests at the exhibition will be able to meet the various players, each contributing their small piece of the overall solution,” says Martin Winkel Lilleøre.

DanFish International 2023 takes place at Aalborg Kongres og Kultur Center (AKKC) 10–12 October 2023. The exhibition is organized in collaboration between AKKC, Danish Export – Fish Tech, part of the Danish Export Association and the Danish Fishermen’s Association.
