New Policy Brief on the Traditional Knowledge of Fisheries in Europe; CHERISH Project Winds Down

Snowchange Fisher Karoliina Lehtimäki checks the fish traps in June 2022.

The Interreg CHERISH Project is winding down. Snowchange experts release a Pan-European Policy Brief on traditional knowledge and the small-scale fishers.

The policy brief highlights the endangered role of Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) across Europe. In this brief TEK is associated specifically with small-scale fisheries (SSF) maintaining cultural heritage. The brief positions the knowledge in a wider context of sustainability and heritage and offers action points to improve the status and renewal of TEK.

The Cherish project has been working since 2017. It concludes in Spring 2023.
