Icelandic Fisheries
Information centre of the Icelandic Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture - Aquaculture
For centuries, the Icelanders have known of the possibility of transferring live freshwater fish into fishless streams or lakes. Apart from this, aquaculture began in Iceland just before the year 1900 with the first attempts to fertilize and hatch salmonid ova and to release the emerging fry into rivers. Aquaculture in Iceland involved mainly hatching of salmonids and restocking of rivers until 1950. In 1951 an era of small scale rearing of salmonids to a size ready for consumption began with rainbow trout. During the period 1985-90 a large-scale build up of salmonid farms took place.


The Icelandic Shellfish Farmers Association
Mussel farming has been in development in Iceland for 30 years. Most of the time has been spent on scattered test lines put in the sheltered fjords by small companies or individuals. Interestingly the results of spat collections, growth and quality have always been good wherever it has been tried. On the other hand the first initiatives were small and had no potential to follow up the good initial results.


International Salmon Farmers Association - Aquaculture, or fish farming is centuries old. Salmon farming began in Norway approximately 40 years ago but it has become an economic driver and social mainstay of coastal and rural communities all over the world – in countries like Canada, the United States, Chile, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Ireland and the Faroe Islands. Salmon farming currently employs thousands of people, generates billions of dollars into local economies and provides leadership and training opportunities for young people so that they can work and raise families in their home communities. Farmed salmon has also become a staple part of a healthy, nutritious and affordable diet for people of all ages.


Aquaculture Stewardship Council
The ASC's mission is to transform aquaculture towards environmental sustainability and social responsibility using efficient market mechanisms that create value across the chain.
