Title: 
  • is The Icelandic Fishing Industry: a Comprehensive Overview Until the end of 2001
Abstract: 
  • is

    This paper gives a short but comprehensive overview of the Icelandic fish industry, its
    history, development and structure until the end of the year 2001. The definition of a fish
    industry will focus on catching (the fishing sector and fish farming), processing and
    export.
    The paper reveals a revolutionary development in the Icelandic fish industry from
    a supplement to farming in the Middle Ages to a modern high-tech industry. The fish
    industry in Iceland is at present one of the central industries in the country, and has a
    leading position in the world. The authors argue that these developments have been
    brought about by structural transformations, such as the introduction of a quota system,
    technical development, deregulation and privatisation, mergers and increased
    concentration, as well as changes in export and marketing.
