Project title: Identifying craftsmanship and local ecological knowledge in coastal fisheries for sustainable use of sustainable management of Nordic sea- and landscapes.

Project description

Soon Nordic coastal fishing will be a memory. During the last century the total number of fishers in nordic countries diminished dramatically. This decline has been particularly pronouced among coastal fishers. The loss of cultural capital that Nordic coastal fishers represent, i.e. ´their working knowledge´ and skills, implies a tremendous setback for sustainable management of coastal sea- and landscapes.
