Icelandic waters are a source of healthy, pure and fresh seafood products. In Iceland, fish is handled with respect, from fishing-vessel to market, bringing you a product of highest quality. 


Sustainable use of marine resources is at the very heart of fisheries management in Iceland. The FAO-Based RFM Certification Program is a third party certification model used to verify responsible fisheries management and good treatment of marine resources. The Cod, Haddock and Saithe fisheries have all been certified.
