The Port of Thyborøn is a specialised port of call for vessels wishing to land high quality fish for human consumption. We provide a reliable cold chain from ship to customer. Danske Fiskeauktioner A/S (fish auction house) resides at the Konsumcenter on the Port of Thyborøn. They conduct advanced internet-based fish auctions with about 150 daily buyers from all over Europe.
Much of the fish landed at the Port of Thyborøn is fresh fish, which is sorted, cleaned, weighed, packed and frozen at sea. On each and every fish factory, every single box of fish is labelled with the name of the vessel, date and area of capture, and species and weight. Catches are landed after only a relatively short trip and therefore contain high-quality fish.
More plaice is landed at the Port of Thyborøn than any other port in Denmark, which is largely due to the port's excellent location close to the best fishing grounds. Large volumes of fish are landed in huge fishing vessels, the majority of which are registered in Thyborøn. As we are the home port for so many fishing vessels, we enjoy the benefits of reliable deliveries for auction and can offer a good flow of raw materials to a shoal of 150 daily buyers from all parts of Europe. Thyborøn is also a port of call for many "foreign" vessels, especially in the high season.
