Each year, the Finnish presidential couple receives a Christmas pike from Korpo, a tradition that dates back to the 18th century, when the inhabitants of Korpo began a tradition of bringing a pike to the Swedish king. The sea has been and still is an important field of work both in terms of fishing and shipping, but also with the existence of pilotage and lighthouse keeper services.
