Fish is delicious and has a high nutritional value, offering many important nutrients and a great deal of protein. On the other hand, it generally contains little fat, and what fat it does contain measures high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to have a very positive effect on human health. Nutritionists thus advise eating fish two to three times a week.
 
Research has demonstrated that Iceland's fishing grounds are among the cleanest in the world, and Icelandic seafood is wholesome and nutritious. Although ocean pollution has no bounds, the fact that Iceland has a small population and is a long way from major industrial nations means that the purity of Icelandic fishing waters is hard to beat. The R&D institute Matís - Icelandic Food Research - has monitored undesirable substances in Icelandic marine catches and determined the amounts of pollutants to be extremely low; generally, the values found lie far below European Union limits. You can view mean values from Matís monitoring here.

To process its catches, GRUN uses only pure, high-quality drinking water. This comes from the Grundarfjörður public water supply site at the Grundarbotnar hollows, where the water is pumped up through boreholes and has proven through regular monitoring to be of superb quality.

The ISGEM Icelandic Food Composition Database includes information comparable to that below on constituents of food found on the Icelandic market and produced in this country. Here are the food composition values for redfish, haddock and cod.
