    This FLAG area covers the municipality of Thisted (the area around the town of Thy), situated on the north-west coast of Jutland, and the municipality of Morsø (the island of Mors) located in the Limfjord.

  • Jammerbugt FLAG

    07/04/2017
    - FLAG Factsheet
    Jammerbugt is situated in the north of the Jutland peninsula. Coastal fishing boats from the Jammerbugt area mostly operatie in the Thorup Strand (Skagerrak). At the Limfjord side of the FLAG area there are several communities with small ports which function mainly as bases for recreational fishing.

  • Danish Small Islands - Småøerne FLAG

    07/04/2017
    - FLAG Factsheet
    The Småøerne FLAG covers 11 islands scattered throughout the seas around Denmark. This is an important change as the FLAG previously covered all 27 islands of the Småøerne LEADER LAG. However, due to budget cuts for CLLD funding and an area reduction as outlined in the fisheries Operational Programme, the FLAG now focuses on specially designated areas experiencing both a decline in population and a decrease in fisheries employment.
  • Nord FLAG

    07/04/2017
    - FLAG Factsheet
    The Nord FLAG consists of the countries’ two northernmost municipalities and contains about 200km of coastline. The FLAG area has Denmark’s largest landings of pelagic fish. It’s no surprise, therefore, that this is an area with widespread fisheries activities in terms of employment, leisure and tourism.

    - FLAG Factsheet
    The Gribskov FLAG area is situated in the north of the island of Sealand. It includes the city of Gilleleje, a lively commercial centre, which is home to the region’s largest fishing port and only fish auction. The city is also an important visitor destination, with tourism and fishing being the main economic sectors in the FLAG area. Except for herring, all the fish landed in the area is exported and not processed locally.
  • Djursland FLAG

    27/12/2016
    - FLAG Factsheet
    The FLAG area covers the entire municipality of Norddjurs, which is notable for its long coastline, made up of sandy beaches – like much of the Danish coastline. This flat coastal landscape attracts tourists from Norway and Germany – as well as domestic visitors. Tourism is the area’s dominant sector. Fishermen struggle now to make a living, but there has been an increase in the number of small businesses processing seaweed, for both food and nonfood uses.
