"If I remember my statistics correctly, the catch of Iceland amounts to the one-third of the catch of the EU. We have stocks that are sustainable, that have been working for years to build sustainable fisheries. It has turned out to be effective economically. Our fishing operations are run by business, they have to survive on the market and this is being matched with what fish stocks can support in terms of catches."
