  • Creating a new tourist destination based on recreational fishing

    - Basic page
    Despite experiencing environmental strain, the Limfjord has an abundance of sea trout. This species is very attractive to anglers. A FLAG-LAG cooperation project addresses local economic and environmental goals by creating a new tourist location based on recreational fishing.
  • Creating a new tourist destination based on recreational fishing

    - Good Practice Project
    Limvuonossa on ympäristörasituksesta huolimatta runsaasti meritaimenta, joka on virkistyskalastajien suosima laji. Alueen talous- ja ympäristötavoitteiden saavuttamiseksi FLAG-ryhmät ovat yhdessä paikallisten toimintaryhmien kanssa perustaneet vapaa-ajankalastukseen keskittyvän uuden matkailukohteen.
  • Old boat engine factory transformed in a multipurpose community hub

    - Good Practice Project
    On Ærø Island, a disused boat engine factory has been turned into a community hub supporting local maritime entrepreneurship. The project aims to boost the island’s economy and social cohesion.
  • Denmark’s first open-water mussel farm

    - Good Practice Project
    Keterminden luonnonmukainen simpukkaviljelmä on Tanskan ensimmäinen yritys, joka markkinoi avovedessä viljeltyjä simpukoita. Sen tavoitteena on tuottaa laadukkaita sinisimpukoita tehokkaasti ja ympäristöystävällisesti, mikä puolestaan vauhdittaa mereen liittyviä toimintoja alueella ja luo sinne uusia työpaikkoja.
  • Agersø shipyard restoration: breathing new life into a decaying building

    - Good Practice Short Story
    Residents of a Danish island formed the Association of Agersø Great Belt-Shipyard to buy and renovate an old building used as a shipyard. This initiative aims to boost local business and increase the harbourfront’s attractiveness.
  • Recycling polystyrene fish boxes

    - Good Practice Project
    Some creative thinking and investment have led to the creation of Denmark’s first recycling plant to process expanded polystyrene into plastic pellets that can be sold to manufacturers for a wide range of new products. This is a leap forward in terms of handling used fish boxes.
  • Seaweed business knowledge & skills for local seafood price improvement

    - Cooperation Idea
    The Djursland FLAG is looking to learn from other FLAG areas in order to develop projects to improve the sales price of local seafood, ideally in contexts similar with its fisheries communities (small-scale, Baltic/North Sea coastal fisheries).
  • Community “sea gardens”

    - Good Practice Project
    Inspired by the well-known, land-based garden allotments concept, setting up gardens at sea and creating the Sea Garden Association has helped inject new life into Ebeltoft harbour and promote local coastal food and marine culture.
  • Innovation on board helps shorten the supply chain

    - Good Practice Short Story
    Dansk Økomusling Aps is a company based in the Thy-Mors area of Northern Denmark. Until now, their line mussels were harvested, packed unsorted in 1000 kg mesh bags and sent overseas for processing before returning to be sold on the Danish market. This created a lengthy supply chain that often reduced the overall quality, increased the costs and the carbon footprint of their products.

    - FLAG Factsheet
    Kerteminde is located at the north-east of Denmark's second largest island Funen (Fyn), which situated between the island of Zealand and mainland Denmark (Jutland). The fishing industry has been under pressure for many years and its economic influence in society is declining. Despite this trend, new jobs have been created in the blue economy sector.
