On Wednesday 5 September, The King visited the Öresund Sound for discussions with representatives from angling and professional fishing on the situation for cod in particular.
Öresund is a unique example of a coastal area with healthy fish stocks and profitable, sustainable fishing. This is despite Öresund being one of northern Europe's most densely populated regions, one of the world's busiest shipping channels and surrounded by intensively farmed land.
Together with representatives from angling and professional fishing, The King travelled onto the Öresund Sound on a tour boat to discuss the situation for cod in particular.
Today, the Öresund Sound is Sweden's only coastal area to have strong stocks of cod of all sizes.
The four following talks were given on board:
The trip concluded with The King and the participants fishing before returning home.
