Information to the market

FMIS tries to keep market participants informed about expected supply of fish, partly via the web and also with direct communication by telephone. We value the relationship we have with our customers and try to provide all information possible.

Preparing the catch for transport

After the auction, we prepare the fish for transport according to the buyer's requirements, for example by adding ice and arranging tubs into containers.

Sorting by size

Our facilities in Arnarstapi, Grundarfjordur, Olafsvik, Rif and Stykkisholmur include equipment for sorting fish into size categories. The categories are defined by the Icelandic Fish Markets' Data Center.


Gutting is available in  Arnarstapi, Grundarfjordur, Olafsvik, Rif, Skagastrond and Stykkisholmur.

Our gutting station is MSC certified (MSC-C-55750). You can see here what species are certified and from which fishing gear. 


All fish is clearly labelled after the auction and made available for transport. The buyer can request that certain arrangements, such as gutting, are always made with his purchases.
