VSV is the Westmann Islands’ largest employer.

We have 250 full-time staff, or whom close to a hundred work at sea and others are employed in processing, fishmeal production, management, administration, maintenance and a variety of other roles.

The seasonal nature of fisheries means that additional staff are required when the capelin, mackerel and langoustine seasons are at their height. The number of staff working at VSV can often double when both peak mackerel and langoustine seasons coincide.
