Slow Fish

Fish: It’s a slippery issue. Hidden underwater, our marine resources are not easy to study or understand. What state are our seas in? What fish species are on the verge of extinction? Can we influence the market? Should we stop eating fish? Just when we think land is in sight, we find ourselves out in the open sea again, unsure how to proceed, buffeted by contradictory advice, apocalyptic scenarios and a confusion of expert opinions, no longer sure what’s allowable or even safe to eat. But if we stubbornly make the effort to investigate the subject, we can see strong currents of thought starting to form. Slow Food has been working in the field of sustainable fish for many years, raising awareness among seafood-lovers through the biennial Slow Fish fair in Genoa and developing projects to support responsible artisanal fishing communities. The Slow Fish website reflects Slow Food’s journey and offers pathways through this complex topic for anyone who wants to learn how to use common sense, curiosity and appetite to make choices that are conscious, delicious and responsible.
