Danish anglers are allowed to catch 15-20 tuna, which must be made available to researchers at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU).
It is usually illegal to catch tuna in Denmark without putting them back in the sea. But Denmark has made a barter with fishing quotas with Spain.
“We are doing this project to become wiser about tuna in Danish waters,” says Rasmus Prehn (S), who is Minister of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries.
According to the agreement, Spain will receive quotas for catching 35 tonnes of mackerel, and Denmark will receive five tonnes of tuna quotas.
“It’s not because more tuna are going to be caught. No, we trade with the Spaniards so that they can catch fewer tuna, but instead they get some of our mackerel, “says Rasmus Prehn.
Rasmus Prehn hopes the first tuna can be caught in September.
DTU Aqua is already working on a project where tuna in Danish waters will be tagged. But with the new project, they need to get even wiser on the fish.
