A complete mint set of three stamps pays tribute to the fish industry in Iceland. The stamps feature a haddock freezing plant, cod fishing, and a lobster canning plant.

Only the 7Kr stamp has a maritime theme, it shows us a deck scene of a fishing boot by hauling in the longline what was used mostly at that time to catch cod. The fishing boat is till so far not identified.

The cod is also depict on the stamp.
