The 2011 edition of Slow Fish arrives in Genoa, Liguria

From 27th to 30th May, the 2011 edition of Slow Fish, the fair dedicated to the “sustainable” fish, arrives in Genoa, in collaboration with Slow Food, Salone Internazionale del Gusto of Turin and Regione Liguria.

So, from Friday 27th to Monday 30th May, the Pavilion B of Fiera di Genoa will host once again many stalls showing products coming from all over Italy and the Mediterranean Sea, the taste workshops, debates about sustainable policies of the sea and the responsible consumption of fish.

After the great success of Euroflora, Genoa hosts another great event that, as usual, will welcome thousands tourists from all over the world.

Small-scale fishers: a threatened species: that’s the common thread of this year’s edition of Slow Fish. Without ignoring the on-going depletion of our oceans and seas, attention will be focused on the people around the world who make their living from fishing, who serve as custodians of the sea and who carry with them an invaluable legacy of memory and traditional knowledge.

Once again, Slow Fish’s calendar is rich in events: guided tastings at the Taste Workshops, renowned chefs at the Theater of Taste, opportunities for reflection and debate with leading experts at the Water Workshops and the educational experiences Sea, Fish and Fishers and Markets, Menus and Cooks for the public and schools.

The event offers many participative ways to explore all the Slow Fish activities dedicated to the future of small-scale coastal fishing, looking at the difficult balance between safeguarding the income of fishers and protecting the marine resources on which their livelihood depends.

Slow Fish is an opportunity for retracing the story of artisanal fishing, learning how it works, what cultures it involves, its hardships and skills, as well as discovering how much small-scale fishing has changed today, how it relates to the world and how it has suffered from globalization, and hearing firsthand from the producers of the Presidia of the Sea and those exhibiting in the richly varied Market section.

A perfect occasion for taking part, keeping informed and knowing some curious things about the sea world!
