MRI runs two research vessels: Bjarni Sómundsson (55 m) and Árni Friðriksson (70 m).

The research vessels are able to operate a variety of fishing gear. They also provide facilities for many other types of sampling and measurements. Shipboard laboratories allow sample analysis and data processing at sea. About 30 people man the ships.

Both ships are available for rent. Please contact Sólmundur Már Jónsson (solmar@hafro.is, tel: +354 5752000).
