Jackie Ellis, TEAM Tourism Consulting

Summary

Fishing and fish processing are central to Iceland’s heritage and cultural identity, as well as its economic prosperity. However, a series of events, including the 2008 banking crash and the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, saw this small island nation facing a calamitous financial position.
