Klädesholmen herring museum
Nordiska akvarellmuseet – Skärhamn
The museum, housed in PK’s old factory, shows the unique industrial environment that Klädesholmen represents. Here you can see how it happened when boats from Klädesholmen visited almost all Swedish ports to sell different fish and herring products. This sale from the boats was succeeded by the canning industry at Klädesholmen, which produces 40% of all Swedish preserves. You can also see how the fishing boats came in with common ling from Shetland and how it was prepared before it became Stockfish (Lutfisk). In total there are five canning museums in the world, of which only the half-conservation method is available at Klädesholmen. Here is an epoch in the canning industry, which spans the period 1920-1960, a time when the canning industry and the fishery provided jobs and livelihood for most of the island.
