Merger to strengthen Danish aquaculture

Danish export association

The member organisations Danish Export Association and AquaCircle merge to ensure a stronger unified voice for Danish aquaculture.

They say that exporting feed, equipment and solutions to the global aquaculture industry is an important part of the Danish economy.

“Therefore, it is crucial that the industry has the best conditions to ensure continued development towards increasingly sustainable food production based on the best and most energy-efficient technologies.”

To strengthen the overall voice of aquaculture and create the best possible coherence for the players in Danish aquaculture, the two member organisations have merged and will now operate under the name Danish Export – Fish Tech.

They say this ensures that all relevant players in the industry now have a single entry point for export promotion, commercial activities and political advocacy.

The export network Danish Export – Fish Tech brings together Danish feed, equipment, technology, and service suppliers within aquaculture, including turnkey suppliers of systems, manufacturers of small components, feed producers and suppliers of processing equipment.

“It is important that we can ensure the best possible conditions for industry players by creating a stronger voice together. Our members in Danish Export – Fish Tech are dependent on a strong aquaculture industry in Denmark to be able to develop in the export markets.

Therefore, I am pleased that through the merger with AquaCircle we can also create a stronger political voice,” said Martin Winkel Lilleøre, Head of Fish Tech at Danish Export Association.
