Abstract

The most important export industry in Greenland are fisheries - they contribute 90% of the total export value. The local trading and processing is challenged by the fact that Greenland largely depends on island operation, which complicates and limits the infrastructure. For the fishing industry, power and water supply pose a considerable challenge, where the prize determination is a contributing reason for the reduced local processing and thereby the reduced occupation. A development, which challenges the livelihood of several local communities.
