Iceland Ocean Cluster and Arctica Finance are publishing new analysis about the inland processing of ground fish.
Ground fish processing in Iceland has increasingly moved from sea to land in recent years. This is evidenced by a change in the fishing fleet composition and landed catch. Since 2010, the number of freezer trawlers has decreased by 43% and the portion of landed cod by freezer trawlers has gone down by 9.5%. Furthermore, four wet fish trawlers have been added to the fleet and the fleet’s portion of landed cod has increased by 9%. This development in ground fish processing stems from several sources, but chiefly from the incentive of greater economic efficiency, viz. higher prices for fresh fish as well as lower labor costs (relative to revenue) and higher EBITDA of vertically integrated companies. Other major contributing factors in this progression include a resource tax and technological advancements.

Fish waste for profit conference held in Reykjavik for the third time. A huge success. 100 participant from 15 countries. Never have so many 100% fish utilization enthusiasts been together in one room – and from all over the world.
We learned that 3D printers can make very cool “Cod Castles” from cod byproducts. Way to get kids to love eating fish?
