In October the IOC organized a three day tour in Iceland for an Alaskan trade mission group interested in learning about Icelandic fisheries. The tour was organized in cooperation with the Department of Commerce in the State of Alaska after an introduction to the Icelandic way in Juneu, Alaska by Thor Sigfusson, CEO of the IOC.

The group attended several lectures at the Ocean Cluster House in Reykjavik, visited fisheries companies in Grindavík and was introduced to the 100% Cod at Codland. The group was also introduced to various tech and biotech companies in the marine industry such as Wise Dynamics, Lipid Pharmaceuticals and Zymetech. “The trip was a great success and we feel these services have been well received.” says Eva Rún Michelsen, CEO of the Ocean Cluster House.
