respecting the sea: Codfish and Marine Resource management

NORDIC TALK 2

Atlantic Cod has been travelling between the Barents Sea and Lofoten since the beginning of our memory – but will this journey (including the rich annual catches) last? How do we live with the fish and respect it as a food source within its ecosystem?

How do we change approach to how we manage, look and interact with the sea? What the studies and the practices around codfish management could tell us about alternatives approaches to the sea?

With this talk, we wanted to explore the stories of fish and people and the relationship and connection between human and fish. Our international speakers looked at how the main points and actions to make this relationship sustainable.
