The prosperity of Icelanders is based on a gentle and delicious fish called cod.
Cod has been the most valuable seafood in Iceland for centuries. It has been exported dry, salted, frozen and most recently fresh and is a high quality product throughout the world.
Icelanders have been known to eat little cod and prefer haddock, but in recent years this has been changing and they appreciate it better.
Cod is mostly caught wild, but in recent years, cod farming was tried but is yet to be proven economically viable.
The cod and the girl certainly deserves some artistic touch in the spirit of the Udnie painting.
