Meet us in Brussels

Danish Fishermen PO has strengthened its presence on the international scene and runs now an office in the heart of Brussels and in walking distance to the European institutions.

The address is:

Danish Fishermen PO
Rue du Luxembourg 47-51
B-1050 Bruxelles

The office is managed by Principal Advisor Mr. Thomas Kruse (tk@dkfisk.dk +45 40154725)

 

Why?

Because much of the legislation imposed on fishermen all over Europe origins from Brussels. We try to influence and increase knowledge about the specific conditions for fishermen at all relevant levels, thus focusing on all relevant stakeholders taking part in the decision-making in Brussels: The European

Commission, The Council, The European Parliament and last but certainly not lest eNGO’s, having interests in fisheries.

DFPO is member of the European Association of Fish Producers Organizations (EAPO) which represents 38 POs from 10 EU Member States, with approximately 10,000 vessels, 3.5 million tonnes of landings and € 3 billion first sale value.

DFPO is member of The European Fisheries Alliance, which is a coalition of European fishing fleets representing the interests of the fishing industry in the remaining 27 Member States of the European Union after Brexit.

DFPO is also present in fora outside Europe. We are engaged in fisheries alliances worldwide, such as the International Coalition of Fisheries Associations (ICFA).
