Icelandic Fisheries and fish processing

Iceland is the second biggest fishery behind Norway in the North East Atlantic, since overtaking the United Kingdom in the early 1990s. Given all of the Icelandic fisheries and fish processing companies, this country is the ideal location for companies producing fish products and fishing gear for the European and American markets. The country has a 200-mile exclusive zone of rich fishing grounds and a fishing fleet with a total capacity of around 120,000 GRT (gross registered tonnage). Plentiful supplies of fish are also available from foreign vessels and Iceland´s distant-water fleet fishing beyond the exclusive zone. In 2003 Iceland was the 12th largest fishing nation in the world with around 2% of world catches. Here you'll find a list of a few of the major Icelandic fisheries and fish processing companies.
