Sweden is the EU’s 8th largest producers of fisheries and 15th largest of aquaculture products.

Landings comprise the initial unloading of any fisheries products, including aquatic plants, from on board a fishing vessel to land in a given country, regardless of the nationality of the vessel making the landings. They are recorded in net weight.
In 2016, 74% of species was landed fresh, while 19% were landed cooked. 79% of the landings was destined to human consumption. Almost 90% of fishery products was landed by Swedish vessels. There are 148 recorded fishing ports in Sweden (source: EU Master Data Register).
Apparent consumption of fishery and aquaculture products in Sweden amounted to 26,9 kg per capita in 2015, equal to the previous year. The main consumed species are herring and cod.
Swedes consume especially fresh and frozen products; loose fish (56%) is less frequently consumed than the EU average (68%). From a socio-demographic point of view, regular fish consumers mainly belong to the age classes 40-54 and over 55. Young people also tend to eat fish frequently in Sweden. This age group has the lowest number of regular consumers across the EU. While this is also the case in Sweden, the number of young people regularly consuming fish is higher than the EU average (source: “EU consumer habits regarding fishery and aquaculture products”).
