In Icelandic, lax means salmon. Laxa means salmon river, and there are several rivers of this name in Iceland, which means that there are a lot of salmon (and trouts) in Icelandic rivers. Iceland is a Mecca for salmon fishermen. To avoid any contamination, fishers material must be completely disinfected on arrival in Iceland, before passing in front of the custom.
