All landings of fishery products into the reporting country's ports, by fishing vessels or other parts of the fishing fleet carrying the flag of the country or the flag of an EU or an EFTA country's flag. Also included are all landings of fishery products into non-EU and non-EEA countries' ports, by fishing vessels carrying the flag of the reporting country, that are destined for transport into the EU or EEA.

Inlcudes all forms in which the species is presented on the market.

Includes all destinations, i.e. both human consumption and industrial uses.

In the case of missing values all related higher-level aggregations arealso reported as missing. Further information can be obtained from the national statistical office.

For more information, please see the Eurostat Metadata.

Faroe Islands are currently in the process of restructuring their fishing statistics, new data expected in 2023.


FAO maintains the FAO ASFIS (Aquatic Sciences and Fishery Information System) list of Species for Fishery Statistics Purposes. Using this list, all species are identified by an internationally assigned three letter identifier (e.g. COD = A.2.2: Atlantic cod, PLE = A.1.5: European plaice). Based on their taxonomic, ecological and economic characteristics, the species are aggregated in 50 groups according to the FAO 'International Standard Statistical Classification for Aquatic Animals and Plants' (ISSCAAP). These groups are aggregated further to higher level groups, to which the codes F10, F20, . F90 are assigned.

reporting country


2017: Very few values are reported for Denmark, and of the few that are reported most are estimates. The majority of the missing values have been reported as confidential, following Eurostat guidelines on statistical confidentiality. These catches, as well as all related higher-level aggregations, are therefor not available. Further information can be obtained from the national statistical office.


No data available prior to 2008.

The figures are from all Greenlandic vessels with Greenlandic licenses and chartered vessels with Greenlandic licenses that have landed in Greenland and in other countries.

For all vessels that land in landing facilities in Greenland the catches are reported in product weight and in product price. For vessels landing abroad, the catches are reported in live weight and in live weight price.


Includes Åland.

Tonnes product weight

The weight recorded is the weight of the product as landed (landed weight).


The price quoted is that at the time of the first sale of the product. For products which are not immediately sold or which are subject to a contract or other arrangement, the average price has been estimated by the national authorities using a method appropriate for that particular situation.
