FMIS welcomes purchases from abroad and already a significant fraction of the fish sold through FMIS goes to foreign buyers. While direct purchases from abroad are possible and we are committed to making all such transactions go smoothly, it may be advantageous for foreign buyers to operate through a local agent. Much of the information provided by the fish market and the auction is in Icelandic only.

Buyers must set up an account with the Icelandic Fish Market's Data Center and provide a bank guarantee for all unsettled purchases. The Data Center provides special software to participate in the daily auction over the internet. For more information, please go to www. In addition, the buyer must arrange transportation of the fish from the market.

Please contact us if you need any assistance.
