PORT OF HVIDE SANDE – FISH AUCTION
Hvide Sande Fish Auction, which is a part of Danske Fiskeauktioner A/S, has a modern auction hall with a 1,400 m2 cold store inside the auction hall. From here all edible fish are sold, which ensures a very high quality. Fish from Hvide Sande are sought after and valued all over Europe.
Auctions take place on the Internet, where more than 100 buyers from all over Europe bid for the landed catches every morning from 7 o’clock.
A large part of the landings at the auction are frish fish, packed at sea; that is, fish that are sorted, cleaned and iced on board the fishingvelssel. On some vessels the fish boxes are supplied with labels with information on dates when the fish were caught, the locations where they were caught and weight. The information follows the catches all the way to the fish mongers or to when they are re-packed by the exporters.
Hvide Sande Fish Auction / Danske Fiskeauktioner A/S is certified to sell a range of edible fish under the MSC – the Marine Stewardship Council. The MSC certification ensures that the catches stem from sustainable fishing and that the fish can be traced all the way from the cutter to the consumer.
