Organization

Who are we?

KNAPK (Kalaallit Nunaanni Aalisartut Piniartullu Kattuffiat) is an interest group for fishermen and hunters of Greenland. Founded in 1953 as a merger of local unions, following a meeting between The Royal Greenland Trading Department and the then-governor. Our main focus is the industrial development of fishermen and hunters on an economic, societal, and cultural level, and we continuously create new innovative opportunities for our members.

The organization can cooperate with similar foreign organizations, but it is crucial to underline the fact that KNAPK is in no way associated with any specific political party.
