Salmon farming company Kaldvík, formerly known as Ice Fish Farm, has been listed on the First North Iceland Growth Market.

Kaldvík focuses on sustainable salmon farming and holds the AquaGAP certification, a distinction achieved by few salmon farmers. The company conducts its sea farming operations on the Eastern coast of Iceland.

The listing was celebrated with a closing bell ceremony yesterday at Randulff’s Sea House pier in Eskifjörður. Guðmundur Gíslason, Kaldvík’s CEO, rang the closing bell, marking the occasion.
