The profitability weakened in most sectors in the fish processing industry in 2011. Again the clipfish industry and the stockfish industry was the most profitable industries. Profits in important white fish sectors producing salted fish and fillets weakened further. Pelagic processors were also hit by weaker earnings.

Lower activity in the industry led to fewer jobs. By the end of 2010 the industry employed 10.500 persons.
