The 7th Icelandic Fisheries Awards was held on the opening night of the Exhibition.

Taking place immediately after the closure of the first day of the exhibition, the ceremony was in the format of a Cocktail Reception which offered great networking opportunities for all. The awards evening has become synonymous with the venue – the beautiful Gerðarsafn – Kópavogur Art Museum, which is only five minutes away from the exhibition.
