Fávllis - Sámi fisheries research network

Fávllis — Sámi fisheries research network was established in 2003 after an initiative from the Centre for Sámi Studies at the University of Tromsø. Fávllis in Sámi means “to be out at sea”.

The network consists of employees from several research institutions and local competence centres that through various ways engage themselves in resource management, legal rights issues and/or the cultural and economic situation in the coastal Sámi areas. The aim of Fávllis is to generate new knowledge for Norwegian and Sámi resource and environmental management and to contribute to multiple and cross-disciplinary cooperation between research institutions, and also promote research recruitment with relevance for Sámi fisheries. In addition, the Fávllis network has a strategic aim to contribute to Sámi fisheries becoming a prioritized research field.
