Agriculture, forestry and fishery

The primary sector comprising agriculture, forestry, fishery and hunting only accounts for a small part of total employment in the Nordic countries: from 2.2 per cent of employment in Sweden to 6.0 per cent of employment in Iceland. However, the sector indirectly forms the basis for a considerable part of production and employment. This is partly due to the fact that products from agriculture, forestry, fishery and hunting are used as raw materials in manufacturing and in other industries, and partly that many goods and services are required by the capital-intensive primary sector, such as agricultural machinery, wood-cutting equipment, fishing vessels etc., as well as maintenance and services incidental to this machinery and equipment.
