Herring factory in Ingólfsfjörður, a fjord north from Djúpavík in the far north of Iceland, was built in 1942-44. Soon after construction the herring catches declined and the factory was closed in 1952.
The factory processed herring to produce fishmeal and oil. The oil was filtered to extract the water and then stored in large heated tanks outside the factory
