In this connection, it is sufficient to mention an impressive fleet of vessels, perfect land processing, vessels that can store live fish in equipped tanks and planned land-based farming in Reykjanesbaer. The list is actually longer in terms of innovation.
Samherji employs solution-oriented and hard-working people, who succeed in developing this progressive and technologically advanced company, where emphasis is placed on a good and creative working environment. As I said, I am full of anticipation and grateful to have been patterned on board.
