Largest fish auction in DK
Hanstholm Fish Auction is a Danish market leader and among the largest fish auctions in Northern Europe. Hanstholm Fish Auction was the first auction in the world to sell fish using the MSC-standards for sustainability, and today a big part of the fish is MSC-certified.

In 2022, Hanstholm Fish Auction set a turnover record, selling fish valued at more than 800 million DKK, corresponding to almost 95 million GBP. The high value corresponds to around 33.000 tonnes of fish sold.

Auctioneer Jesper Kongsted says the keywords are quality, freshness, volume, and service:

“Hanstholm is a center for edible fish – a high-quality fish market where large quantities of freshly caught fish are sold at very good prices, surrounded by a wide range of skilled service suppliers. We are constantly looking for new business partners who will contribute to our port, services, and attractive fish market – do not hesitate to meet us at Skipper Expo,” says Jesper Kongsted.

“At Hanstholm Fish Auction we work purposefully every day to be a market leader who matches supply and demand while providing the best possible service. We don’t see ourselves as an auction only, but also a service central – a one-point of contact who assists our customers with almost everything by connecting them with the right service providers etc.”
