Both at Sea and on Land
Brim has operating units both at sea and on land.
Brim operates pelagic vessels, freezer trawlers and wetfish trawlers. There are various jobs on board, and the number of crew varies depending on the type of ship and fishing days. The fishing days of a freezer trawler can, for example, be up to a month, while in some cases, the fishing days of pelagic vessels can be counted in hours.
Brim’s operating units on land are in Reykjavík, in Akranes and in Vopnafjörður.
Brim’s main office is at Norðurgarður in Reykjavík, as is the demersal fish processing plant, which is one of the most advanced in the world. The management of the demersal and pelagic departments is located in the main office, as are the finance and marketing departments. The demersal fish processing plant has many diverse jobs, where thousands of portions of food are produced every day from high-quality ingredients.
In Akranes, Brim’s pelagic fish processing plant processes capelin roe. Production is only operational during the capelin fishing season, from February to March. The premises are specifically designed and the staff specially trained in the processing of capelin roe. The company also operates a fishmeal factory in Akranes for the processing of capelin and demersal fish waste.
Vopnafjörður is home to Brim’s pelagic processing plant. Located there is a processing plant which specialises in processing pelagic fish. There is also a fishmeal factory and a research laboratory, which performs measurements on freshness, fat content and more things related to the operations.
Brim’s subsidiaries in Iceland have offices in the southwest corner of the country. Fiskvinnslan Kambur has its offices in Hafnarfjörður, Vignir G. Jónsson in Akranes and Seafood Services in Reykjavík.
