The Char Farm

Established in 1995 at Kirkjubaejarklaustur in Iceland, Klausturbleikja is a leading aqua-cultural producer of Arctic Char. The unique aspect of Klaustur Char is that it’s raised and harvested in a free flowing spring water source.

Nature and the Glacier

Two of the largest glacial rivers in Iceland are generated from the highlands off the Vatnajokull Glacier. The Klaustur Char fish farm is built on one of those old river beds. Fresh water flows up to the surface and form free flowing streams that are ideal to cultivate fresh water fish such as the Char.
