Hallador Kristinsson, an Icelandic fisherman

His main goal:
As someone whose livelihood depends on the sea, I’m calling for a system of fishing that allows us to preserve fish species. Fishing responsibly can tip the scales in the right direction and preserve the fish and the future of fishing and fishermen. We have to do everything we can to ensure that we still have fish in the years to come!

"This method of fishing “with long lines” also has a very limited impact on the environment and doesn’t damage the sea bed. The fish we catch using this method are of the highest quality. Their flesh remains really white, firm and fresh".
Hallador Kristinsson .

His production:
The family fishing company (set up in 1965) and run by brothers Hallador and Alexander Kristinsson is called Sjávariðjan. They have three fishing boats; two are sister boats, Stakkhamar and Sæhamar, both 12 metres long and crewed by 5 fishermen and Hamar a 36 metre long boat has 5 crew members. The two smaller boats fish daily, returning at the end of the day. The bigger boat sets off for 2/3 days at a time; it can fish in areas further away from the shores because of its size. They really depend on this large boat because the small boats cannot venture out if the sea is too choppy.
