Eldey Aqua

Eldey Aqua aims to be regenerative, in all that we do.

We believe that only then are we good enough for the future.

We are based in the Westfjords of Iceland, where our families have been sustainably co-existing with nature for a milennia.

The local species should be protected and aided in a changing enviroment.
