The Kukkolaforsen collection is a tribute to whitefish fishing with nets along the Torne and Kalix rivers. The method of fishing with nets dates back to the 16th century. Raking whitefish has been inherited for generations and is done with long-handled nets from the long protruding wooden bridges called pator and on meänkieli Krenku. Kukkolaforsen in Torneälv is a natural attraction in Tornedalen. In summer, whitefish are hauled out of the river, and the whitefish festival at Kukkolaforsen dates back to the Middle Ages and traditionally falls on the weekend after St. James' Day. At the rapids there is also the tourist facility Kukkolaforsen.
