Fish farming at sea: salvation or curse? – On attitudes towards fish farming in marine pens in Iceland

The project involves gathering sources and analysing discourse on fish farming in the sea around Iceland, in the East Fjords and West Fjords. Emphasis is placed on identifying the main factors in criticism and support of marine fish farming.

Sustainability and natural and environmental conservation will be kept in mind as key concepts to be highlighted, but consideration will also be given to the role that arguments about economic development, employment, regional development policy and use of resources have played in discussions on this industry and decisions that have been made.
