Will fresh fish still arrive in Denmark even though the borders are closed?

Yep, it does.

Although the government has closed down for people to travel in and out of Denmark this does not apply to food.

There are many supermarkets that have ordered extra goods so their stock is full of goods. Special stores such as fishmongers still get fresh seafood delivered several times a week from abroad.

It ranges from tuna in Japan to salmon from the Faroe Islands. However, the fishmongers may well find that the amount of tuna entering Denmark is less than it usually. This is not because the quantity of goods from the producers has decreased.

There are some food suppliers in Denmark who order fewer products from abroad at the moment. This is because the restaurant industry has been shut down for a period of time.

However, the most sought after items such as fresh salmon, marinated herring and other Scandinavian seafood will be found at the fishmongers.
