Further to the visit from HM Ambassador Stuart Gill and his team in earlier this year we are delighted that
Sigurdur Ingi Johannsson- Minister of Fisheries and Agriculture and
Thordur Ægir Oskarsson - Ambassador, Embassy of Iceland London have accepted the invitation to visit the Humber Seafood Summit in Grimsby on 17/18 September. There visit will further strengthen the relationship between the Humber and Iceland. This will be continued when we attend the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition 25-27 September.
Iceland are fisheries experts but we should never underestimate our relationship with them, there is always room for collaboration for mutual benefit.
The objective of the Chamber is to promote and maintain commercial links between Britain and Iceland.
In accordance with the Chamber’s objective it:

The GFMA/SGH under its new identity will lead the way in maintaining our region’s competitiveness, identifying funding streams for supporting growth, broadening membership and will replace the Humber Seafood Group.
