Another, definitely human-caused problem is Iceland is the slow disappearance of the fish population that support Iceland's huge fishing industry. This particularly effects Ísafjörður, as it is a fishing village. It was always a smallish town, but with the lack of fish to feed the main trade, its population is shrinking, as the population of many nearby fishing towns is.
There are many projects at work by Iceland's eco-concious government and the private sector both to work on sustainable fishing efforts, fish farming, and other solutions to the problem of the rapidly shrinking fish populations around the island.
