Responsible Fisheries

For the benefit of future generations

In recent years, demand for sustainable use of renewable resources, including fish stocks, has increased greatly throughout the world. Sustainability is almost becoming a key word in seafood industry. Sustainable and responsible fisheries management in Iceland is of a fundamental importance as fisheries are one of the main pillars of the Icelandic economy. The seafood industry is meeting demands of seafood buyers for sustainable use of marine resources with Iceland Responsible Fisheries programme, developed on the basis of commitments made through national law and international agreements.
