The Ocean Cluster House has attracted a unusually large number of foreign visitors for the past weeks, interested in the Icelandic fisheries industry and related sectors. As an example, a group of 40 Dutch university students studying human geography at the University of Gronigen visited the house last week with the aim of exploring the importance of the ocean cluster to Iceland’s economy and society. We thank the Dutch group for coming and hope their stay here has been great.


Today we proudly welcomed a large group from New Zealand interested in exploring new ways to utilize rest raw material from fish products. This group consists of representatives from fisheries, ministries and the academic sector. We hope the Icelandic firms that will be receiving the group for the next few days will give them a warm welcome and introduce some of the endless ways available in utilizing rest raw material from the ocean.
