ZeroKyst presented at fishermen association's annual assembly

By Kurt Atle Hansen

ZeroKyst was invited to Bodø on 13 September to present its activities at the annual assembly of Norges kystfiskarlag, an association of coastal fishermen. Information was shared about the Paris agreement's directives regarding fisheries, and the energy transition of the fishing floats. Randi Lervik and Roger Abrahamsen held presentations about ZeroKyst, while Kurt Atle Hansen and Erik Ianssen participated in a debate about collaboration and dissemination of the technical solutions developed by the ZeroKyst project.

Several fishermen from Flakstad and other areas of the Lofoten were present at the meeting. Steinar Friis held a presentation with a good historical perspective, and the Association adopted a series of forward-thinking measures that could have a positive impact on ZeroKyst and other projects for green energy and the energy transition of the fishing fleet.
