The Icelandic Fisheries Awards recognises the depth of excellence in commercial fishing and celebrates the outstanding individuals and innovative companies that comprise this vibrant and productive industry sector.

The awards were first introduced in 1999 and the stature of this event has grown over the years. The awards are hotly contested and are now truly seen as an accolade with winners using their success in the awards to promote their company and products.

The 9th Icefish Awards will take place on Wednesday 18th September 2024 immediately after the closure of the first day of the exhibition.

The ceremony will be in the format of a cocktail reception, offering great networking opportunities for all.

The awards evening has become synonymous with the venue – the beautiful Gerðarsafn – Kópavogur Art Museum, which is only five minutes away from the exhibition.
