According to a new report published by the IOC, the total contribution of the ocean cluster to GDP rose from 26% in 2010 to 27.1% in 2011. The report, titled The Economic Importance and Performance of the Ocean Cluster in 2011, discusses that overall 2011 was a lucrative year for the ocean cluster. The technology sector has realized an estimated 15% growth and other sectors have done well. Increased turnover in fisheries had a positive impact on nearly all related sectors such as logistics, service and industry. A full report in English will be available online next month. Until then, the report is available here in Icelandic.
