The Nordic Council of Ministers held its meeting in the Ocean Cluster House February 7. The OC House has never had as many Government Ministers from so many countries at the same time visiting!  The Council is the official body for inter-governmental co-operation in the Nordic Region.

The Marine environment is one of the priority areas of the Nordic Council. Dr. Thor Sigfusson, the founder of the Iceland Ocean Cluster, introduced the cluster work to the Ministers and emphasized the 100% fish utilization mission of the cluster and the global cluster network.
