Icelandic origin of fish catches in Icelandic waters and responsible fisheries management

The Iceland Responsible Fisheries logo indicates Icelandic origin of fish catches in Icelandic waters and responsible fisheries management. It refers to Icelandic origin and to the Statement on Responsible Fisheries in Iceland. The logo provides opportunities for stakeholders in the value chain of Icelandic seafood to highlight Icelandic origin. Icelandic fishing vessel owners, processing plants as well as other stakeholders in the value chain of Icelandic seafood products can apply for a permit to use the logo. The logo can be used on packaging of products produced from catch of Icelandic  seafood or in advertisements.

A different version of the logo is used to symbolise certification of fisheries and chain of custody certification. Both versions have been registered at the Icelandic Patent Office and in all important markets for Icelandic seafood in order to secure ownership of the logo as a registered trade mark.

Logo use is authorised by the IRF Foundation, c/o Finnur Garðarsson, finnur@irff.is. Application form is available on the web. Applicants pay a registration fee, a one-off payment amounting to EUR 600 (USD 800 and ISK 90,000). An invoice with all necessary bank information will be sent to the applicants following the application.
