“This is the second flatfish fishery which ISF has certified, with the first one being plaice,” said Kristinn Hjálmarsson, project manager at ISF.
“The fishery completed assessment in the Icelandic economic zone but ISF needs to do further work to complete the certification of the component of the fishery which takes place in the east Greenland economic zone.”
In Europe, the main market for Greenland halibut is in France but it is exported across the EU, including the UK. ■
