Iceland


Overview

According to GAPI’s country inclusion rule, Iceland ranks as a major global producer of only one marine finfish species—Atlantic cod. Because Atlantic cod production only accounted for 35% of marine finfish production in Iceland in 2007, Iceland’s country score and indicator scores may not be representative of the performance of its entire marine aquaculture industry.

Iceland’s performance in its Atlantic cod sector yields an above-average country score of 69—placing it sixth out of the 22 assessed countries. The only other assessed Atlantic cod producer, Norway, performs marginally worse (62). When accounting for the relatively small scale of Atlantic cod production in Iceland, however, Iceland’s cumulative score jumps to 96, despite serious escape challenges. Tied with France, this is the highest cumulative country score of any assessed country.
