I read one remark in WWII magazine :

"as from Dec.'40 till Feb.'41 German headquaters had in battle of Atlantic just 18
U-boots. High numbering of submarines e.g.
U-570, U-820 was done in order to make difficult identification by Allies"

Have you heard about it ???

That figure was most likely the number of boats at sea and on patrol. The boats in port or in transit would not have been counted.
