AbstractCurrently there is no established population of free-range wild boar in Denmark. In order to preserve nature and manage national biodiversity, Danish wildlife organisations have presented the idea that the wild boar should be reintroduced into Denmark. There is evidence that wild boar are involved in CSF outbreaks in pigs in Europe. For that reason Danish pig farmers are concerned about the risk associated with such an introduction. The economic consequences of an introduction of CSF would be devastating, not only for the individual farmer, but also for national economies. Denmark, which is the world’s largest net exporter of pork and exports around 84% of its pork production, would be particularly vulnerable. In 2002, Denmark exported pork in the order of 26 bDKK. Therefore, a temporary ban on export, which would follow an introduction of CSFV, would be detrimental for the pig industry.
