The Fisheries Library is the library of the Marine Research Institute and the Icelandic Fisheries Laboratories, Reykjavik, Iceland. The library is open to the public for reading, but only the staff of the institutes is allowed to borrow books.

The book catalog of the library is now searchable (inhouse).

The Fisheries Library is a research library. Subjects covered are oceanography, marine biology, marine geology, food science (mainly fish), marine pollution, and chemistry. The library subscribes to about 300 periodicals and receives about 500 additional periodicals and reports on exchange or as gifts. The library's book collection is about 6500 volumes and about 100 volumes are added per year. The library maintains also a catalog of publications by the staff of the Marine Research Institute and also by the staff of Icelandic Fisheries Laboratories.

Service to staff includes searches in international databanks and interlibrary loans both to the staff and to other libraries around the world. The library maintains a fairly complete collection of ICES ACS papers and ICNAF/NAFO papers dating from around 1955 to date.
