Intra-Nordic Barriers to Seafood Trade
Responsible organisation
2007 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

A working group consisting of representatives of fish industry associations of the Nordic countries has examined the seafood trade patterns in the Nordic countries with the objective of identifying possible trade barriers and recommending ways of making the intra-Nordic trade in fishery products more efficient. The Nordic countries are all important producers and traders of seafood. Norway, Denmark, Iceland and the Faroe Islands are all substantial exporters and Denmark also a major importer. Denmark, Sweden and Finland and Åland Islands are members of the EU while Iceland and Norway are members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA) and part of the European Economic Area (EEA) together with the EU Member States. The Faroe Islands, and Greenland are linked to the EU through bilateral agreements. The countries' different status with respect to the EU is a key element in understanding the trade patterns in seafood in the Nordic region, and in many ways the trade mirrors the trade conditions the respective countries have with the EU. The working group has found that seafood trade among the Nordic countries goes relatively smoothly, but recommends that further liberalization and the removal of some trade obstacles could improve intra-Nordic seafood trade even further.
