German Boy Says Thanks for All the Fish

The Síldarvinnslan fishing company in the remote East Iceland village of Neskaupstaður received an unexpected letter of thanks from a satisfied customer in Germany last week.

“The letter writer is a young boy in Cuxhaven,” read a post on the company’s Facebook page. “His name is Hauke Nörenberg. In the letter, he describes his satisfaction with the fish from Síldarvinnslan and sends the company his regards…It isn’t often that consumers see fit to send their thanks for good products in this way.”

The company sent their young fan a photograph of Blængur NK, the ship on which the fish was frozen at sea, as well as Síldarvinnslan company swag.

You can read Hauke Nörenberg’s letter (in German) on the Síldarvinnslan Facebook page, here.
