Businesses in Iceland
There are several major Icelandic industries which have seen many changes in the last decades with the rising global interest in geothermal energy and it's possibilities. The country’s geographical location and great natural resources have been encouraging factors in the development of new and more efficient ways of harnessing and using geothermal energy. The Icelandic fish has been considered the countries most prized asset for hundreds of years and with new technology this aspect of Icelandic industries has also changed though it remains regulated and controlled to prevent over fishing.
Icelandic fish remains the top export product but another valuable source is the wool produced by the Icelandic sheep. Iceland's rough environment has produced a unique breed of sheep which through the centuries has developed some of the finest wool coating seen in colder climates. This wool is fast becoming a valuable aspect of the Icelandic economy as it is worked into a myriad of wool garments and textiles.
