Funded by Interreg II Karelia 1996-1999

The project was a preliminary study exploring the possibilities for the development of fur farming, especially mink in Kuhmo and Kainuu.

The project also aims to explore the possibilities of direct sales of mink skins to Russia and further processing of furs in Kuhmo and throughout the Kainuu region. The aim of the project was to study the possibilities of diversifying the production of fur farms in Kuhmo.
