Q: I have visited Iceland many times and one thing I would love to go and see but don’t know if it is possible, is the fish market at the harbor, when the fish comes in and is processed. If it is possible, how and when?


A: Yes, you can go to the fish market but I promise you it is no fun to see three guys bid for cod or haddock in plastic barrels full of fish and ice. Or picturesque.

About the processing, it is a food factory so only the workers are allowed entrance. The safety rules are very important with the fish being exported to all corners of the world.
