Commercial Fishing, Seafood, Aquaculture, Marine & Oceans in Austria


Austria's small fish production is limited mainly to trout and carp. Since Austria is a landlocked country, all marine fish, shellfish, and crustaceans must be imported. The main suppliers are Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, and France. Of the total import value, fresh/frozen fish account for 30 percent, dried and/or smoked fish for 20 percent, fresh/frozen crustaceans and mollusks for 10 percent, and processed fish, crustaceans and mollusks for 40 percent.

Consumption of seafood is low, but rising. The reason for the general upward trend is the rising standard of living, health awareness, and the growing number of restaurants serving seafood.

Austria has a population of around 8 million and an area of 83,871 km². The capital city of the parliamentary republic is Vienna, the official language is German. Austria is part of the Euro zone and the GDP per capita is EUR 27,700. Austria uses the metric system and is on Central European Time.

European Commission - Fisheries - The Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is the European Union's instrument for the management of fisheries and aquaculture. It was created to manage a common resource and to meet the obligation set in the original Treaties of the then European Community. Because fish are a natural and mobile resource they are considered as common property. In addition, the Treaties which created the Community stated that there should be a common policy in this area, that is, common rules adopted at EU level and implemented in all Member States.

Fisheries and fish breeding (aquaculture) in Austria
Fish have always been an important source of food for man. As compared to its small size, Austria is extraordinarily rich in fish species.

Federation of European Aquaculture Producers - The Federation of European Aquaculture Producers (FEAP) is an international organisation that is composed of the National Aquaculture Associations of European countries. The basic aims of the Federation are: * to develop and establish a common policy on questions relating to the production and the commercialisation of aquaculture species are reared professionally. * to make known to the appropriate authorities the common policies envisaged above.

The Austrian fisheries policy
Stronger ecological orientation of fisheries and its legal bases with the prime goal of maintaining the natural diversity of species and the genetic variability of the fish fauna (e.g. by restoring endangered fish populations).

Fish farming (Aquaculture) in Austria
The average per-capita consumption of fish in Austria is only about 6.3 kg/year. This means about three meals with fish a month. Nutritionists recommend eating fish twice a week, however.

The quality of fish depends on its freshness. Fresh fish is recognizable from its shiny skin, smooth flesh, firmly attached, smooth scales, slightly protruding eyes, and odour. Fish should be cooked very gently (at low temperature) in order to conserve all the valuable contents (e.g., by frying, grilling or steaming).

In Austria, carp are raised in some 190 ponds (approx. 2000 ha of pond surface) and approx. 232 facilities raise trout. In a total of some 3300 tonnes are produced per year, including 2400 tonnes of edible fish and some 900 tonnes of stocking fish. The main kinds are trout (approx. 2000 tonnes) and carp (770 tonnes).

Almost all of the fish raised in Austria is marketed directly by the fisheries. Thanks to the high quality and freshness, it can be sold to fine restaurants or “directly from the farm”. Only a small percentage of local products are sold wholesale because of price pressure from industrially produced imports.


The Fisheries Secretariat - The Fisheries Secretariat is a non-profit organisation dedicated to work towards more sustainable fisheries at an international level, with a focus on the European Union. The Fisheries Secretariat (FISH) is a non-profit organisation working towards sustainable fisheries in Europe with a strong focus on the Baltic Sea. Our long-term goal is healthy seas with thriving fish stocks and great diversity. At FISH, we work towards more sustainable fisheries through information, international co-operation, capacity building and lobbying. We have a particular mission to support and help other organisations, as well as the public, with information and knowledge.
