Mercator Media Ltd has confirmed that, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 13th edition of the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition (Icefish) will now be held 15-17 September 2021.

Marianne Rasmussen-Coulling, Events Director of Mercator Media Ltd, explained the decision, “Given the global restrictions on travel and the effects that social distancing requirements will have on the operation of the exhibition, the team at Mercator Media has been examining alternatives and seeking the opinion of exhibitors. There is also the added uncertainty surrounding further possible government actions and restrictions, both in Iceland and abroad. We would all prefer that this was not the case, but in the circumstances, we believe rescheduling to 2021 is now the best option for exhibitors and visitors.”

UNITED STATES
Wednesday, July 01, 2020

A recent spike in U.S. COVID-19 cases has put the domestic foodservice sector back on the defensive.

Other Media | Fish Farmer: 200 jobs lost if Iceland salmon ban approved

ICELAND
Wednesday, July 01, 2020

A Warning has gone out that the potential to create up to 200 jobs will be lost if a proposal to ban fish farming along the fjord which leads to the northern Icelandic city of Akureyri is approved.

Last month the city council told the government in a surprise move that it does not want aquaculture to develop along the 47 mile (70 km) ice free approach to Akuyrei known as Eyjafjörður. But the decision has angered a number of smaller towns, who believe fish farming can improve prosperity. For example the Fjallabyggd town council representing a community at the top of the fjord has signalled to the government it is categorically against such a ban.
