Sea farming

  • Icelandic authorities have taken a strict approach and implemented a regluation that

    obligates sea cage companies to apply to the norwegian NS-9418:2009 standard on

    all equipment used for sea farming in Iceland. This is vital to minimize the risk of

    escapees.

  • All Icelandic sea farms are obliged to deposit into a special „aquaculture

    environmental fund“. The objective of the fund is to promote research concerning

    the sea farming areas and the main beneficiaries of the fund has been The Marine

    Research Institute of Iceland.
