Value Creation in the Icelandic Fisheries Sector
Significant progress has been made in improving the management of marine catches over the last 20-30 years. Fisheries companies, high-tech companies, the government, universities, Matís and others have made great efforts to increase the knowledge of all those involved in the industry regarding the handling of this delicate raw material. Bleeding, gutting, washing, hygiene and cooling are all important factors that have to do with the quality of the raw material. It was once said that one does not make good products from poor raw materials; then rightly so for our fish.
