In addition, the Conference raised the issues of promotion of folk arts and crafts, and the participants of the event came to a conclusion about the urgency of using new tools. It was noted that the growing interest of domestic and incoming tourists to the unique products of folk crafts causes the integration of fisheries into the tourism industry. For the industry, this is an opportunity to expand distribution channels, including by incorporating traditional places of fishing in recommended tourist routes.
