Visiting Nordfisk in Dalvík

Rapid advances in Icelandic fisheries have been accompanied by the development of manufacturing and service industries that draw on a long experience of the practical needs of fishing and fish- processing operations. The Eyjafjörður area is no exception. FTP fellows saw this first-hand when they visited Vélfag, an innovator of fish processing machinery based in Akureyri, Samherji in Dalvík, one of the largest companies in the Icelandic fish industry, Valeska, offering landing services to fishing operators in Dalvík and Akureyri, and Nordfisk, operating a fish market auction. These company visits are described in more detail in separate news items. Click below for photos of the fellows in the Eyjafjörður area.
