Aðeins lítil hluti eldislax fer í fullvinnslu á Íslandi og öðrum Norðurlöndum. Mest allur fiskur er fluttur slægður á markaði þar sem hann er unninn áfram. Ísland stendur höllum fæti í samkeppni við margar samkeppnisþjóðir þegar kemur kostnaði við áframvinnslu, ber þá helst að líta til hárra launa hér en einnig til verndartolla sem lagðir eru á áframunnar eldisvörur frá Íslandi í Evrópu. Því er spurt: Eru væntingar um frekari fullvinnslu hér á landi raunhæfar? Er hægt að ná samkeppnisforskoti með því að nýta nýjustu tækni í áframvinnslu á eldislaxi?

Only a small proportion of farmed salmon goes to value adding processed in Iceland and the other Nordic countries. The fish is transported gutted to a market where it is further processed. Iceland is at a disadvantage due to high salary cost and protective tariffs imposed on Icelandic secondary processing. We therefore ask the questions: Are expectations of further processing in Iceland realistic? Is it possible to gain a competitive advantage using the latest technology in salmon processing?

  • SubChilling of Salmon
    Klukkan 10:00 í Hvammi Sæmundur Elíasson, verkefnastjóri, Matís Aqua-Farming companies in the Nordic countries have increasingly adopted supershilling of fish after slaughtering. Salmon/trout is then cooled quickly after slaughter and gutting below 0 °C, which both increases shelf life and has a significant positive effect on product quality. Superchilling is one of the prerequisites for […]
