The Icelandic seafood industry

Iceland has created one of the most modern and competitive seafood industrie in the world, based on sustainable harvest and protection of the marine ecosystem. The fisheries management in Iceland is primarily based on extensive research on the fish stocks and the marine ecosystem and biodiversity. Decisions on allowable catches are made by the Ministry for Fisheries on the basis of scientific advice from the Icelandic Marine Research Institute. Catches are effectively monitored and enforced by the Directorate of Fisheries. In 2007, all stakeholders in the fisheries sector, signed a statement on responsible fisheries, intended for everyone concerned about the status of the fish stocks and responsible fisheries, particularly the numerous parties that purchase and consume Icelandic fish products. These are the keystones of the Icelandic fisheries management intended to ensure responsible fisheries and the sustainability of the ocean’s natural resources.
