Fishing in harmony with the environment

Fiskkaup’s primary objective is to responsibly fish the fish stocks in Icelandic waters and to support sustainable fishing in harmony with the marine biota and the environment. The company believes in the importance of maintaining a healthy ecosystem for future generations, and the future of the company is also dependent on this. Fiskkaup is committed to the use of environmentally friendly fishing methods and equipment, and we only use line-caught fish for our products.
