Increased earnings in the fish processing industry made 2010 the most profitable year since 1994. The fishmeal industry, the clipfish industry and the stockfish industry was the main contributor to this. Profits in important white fish sectors producing salted fish and fillets were still weak. Pelagic processors had another good year, even if profits were weaker than in 2009.

Increased activity in the industry led to more jobs for the second year in a row. By the end of 2010 the industry employed 10 600 persons.
