Forests and Fishing in Belgium
« on: February 12, 2017, 01:04:19 AM »
Forests cover 22 percent of the area of Belgium, and wooded areas are used primarily for recreational purposes. In recent years, stands of conifers have been planted, and forestry activity has increased; however, timber is still imported for the country’s paper industry.

The main fishing port of Belgium is Oostende. The fishing fleet exploits the North Atlantic Ocean fisheries from the North Sea to Iceland. The total annual catch in 2005 amounted to 25,767 metric tons; most of it consisted of plaice, sole, and cod.
