The fishing industry used to be the working-place where young people expected to find themselves in the future, but as times have changed, young people in the Faroe Islands also changed their future plans. Due to several reasons, the fishing industry does not have a strong attraction for youth any more.

Also, I describe the most attractive future occupations among young people. The results are primarily based on two extensive surveys from 2003.
