Commercial Fishing, Seafood, Aquaculture, Marine & Oceans in Faroe Islands


Fishery and Aquaculture Country Profile for Faroe Islands - aquatic species caught by country or area, by species items, by FAO major fishing areas, and year, for all commercial, industrial, recreational and subsistence purposes. The harvest from mariculture, aquaculture and other kinds of fish farming is also included.


Faroe Fish Farming Association - The Faroe Fish Producers’ Association, The Faroe Fish Farming Association. The Faroe Islands are situated in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Iceland, Norway and Scotland. The Islands are a self governing part of the Danish Realm, but have opted to remain outside the EU.


The Fish Farming Industry on the Faroes
The wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) has important feeding grounds in the sea around the Faroe Islands. The area around the islands is the natural and best place for wild salmon. This gives ideal and natural conditions for farming salmon.

The other commercially farmed specie is the Rainbow trout, reared in the sea. The Rainbow trout was originally imported as eyed ova from Denmark in 1960.

Two farmers are producing cod. The juveniles are produced on the Faroes Aquaculture Station which is a research station on the Faroes.

The Fish farming industry takes advantage of the clean oceanic waters surrounding the Islands. The warm Golf Stream provides a stable sea temperature which possesses excellent conditions for breeding Atlantic salmon, large trout and other species as well. The country is rich of sheltered waters despite the small size of the country.

The production is in average around 50,000 tons of farmed fish in round weight. The evolution of Faroese salmon shows a stable growth of farmed fish production from the early eighties except during the recession in the Faroe Islands in the early nineties when production decreased. In the late eighties there were a large number of farmers in the Faroes. After the recession the fish farming industry was restructured and consolidated. Today the Faroese fish farming industry consists of a small number of farmers.


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.  


Ocean Health Index Faroe Islands - The Ocean Health Index is a valuable tool for the ongoing assessment of ocean health. By providing a means to advance comprehensive ocean policy and compare future progress, the Index can inform decisions about how to use or protect marine ecosystems. The Index is a collaborative effort, made possible through contributions from more than 65 scientists/ocean experts and partnerships between organizations including the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis, Sea Around Us, Conservation International, National Geographic, and the New England Aquarium.

The Faroese Fishing Industry

The fishing fleet consists of about 240 vessels above 20 GRT, ranging from small, wooden coastal vessels to the most sophisticated ocean-going factory trawlers. There are also about 1.000 smaller craft.

The main commercial species of fish caught in Faroese waters, are demersal (ground fish) species such as cod, haddock, coalfish, and redfish, pelagic species as herring and mackerel, and semi-pelagic or deepwater species like argentine and blue whiting.

Most of these catches are landed in the Faroe Islands. In distant waters (Barents Sea, Svalbard, Canada, Greenland) the main species are cod and shrimp, which are processed on board. In middle waters, notably the North Sea west of Britain the main species are blue whiting, mackerel, herring, Norway pout and sand eel, which are landed in the Faroe Islands or abroad. In Icelandic waters various demersal species are caught, as well as capelin and herring.

The catches of demersal fish landed in the Faroe Islands are either exported fresh or processed into fresh fillets, frozen fillets or wet salted fish. Other species are processed into fish meal and oil, or feed for the fish farms. The primary export markets are Denmark (shrimp), Great Britain (Cod and haddock), Germany, France (coly, redfish, black halibut), the Mediterranean countries (salted fish), USA (frozen cod and haddock) and Japan (shrimps, trout).


International Salmon Farmers Association - Aquaculture, or fish farming is centuries old. Salmon farming began in Norway approximately 40 years ago but it has become an economic driver and social mainstay of coastal and rural communities all over the world – in countries like Canada, the United States, Chile, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Ireland and the Faroe Islands. Salmon farming currently employs thousands of people, generates billions of dollars into local economies and provides leadership and training opportunities for young people so that they can work and raise families in their home communities. Farmed salmon has also become a staple part of a healthy, nutritious and affordable diet for people of all ages.
