Fish Dependence – 2011 Update


This is an update of the Fish Dependence report published in July 2010. It includes figures for self-sufficiency levels and fish dependence days in 2011 for all EU27 Member States.

This updated report includes: 

  • a comparison between the 2011 and 2010 results, illustrating the extent to which the EU is becoming ever more dependent on fish from other regions; 
  • new shares of catch in non-EU waters for the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands.

All the updated information is explained in the relevant sections.

In the coming years it is our intention to provide an annual update and so we would welcome suggestions on how to improve the content and look of this work.
