Slow Food Priverno and OCEAN 2012 together for the Common Fisheries Policy

Last August 25th at San Felice Circeo, Slow Food Priverno, the Municipality of San Felice Circeo, OCEAN2012 and the Circeo Fishing Club organized an important conference on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy called Pescatori di piccola scala: un'altra specie in estinzione (Small scale fishermen: another endangered species).


Guido Milana (Vice President of the Fisheries Commission at the European Parliament), Sebastiano Venneri (National Director of Legambiente), Serena Maso (National Coordinator of OCEAN2012) and Tommaso Iacoacci (Provincial Coordinator of Slow Food) participated in the event.


The initiative was developed with OCEAN2012, a coalition of organizations which share the desire to transform the European Common Fisheries Policy and stop excessive fishing and destructive fishing practices, and ensure a fair and sustainable use of healthy fish stocks. Slow Food is a member of OCEAN2012 since last May.


Tommaso Iacoacci says: “Slow Food has always stood by those who work the land; now, it also wants to show its presence and involvement with those who work with the sea and at sea”. “We are going through a very delicate historical moment”, continues Iacoacci. “Finance manages and has the monopoly of fishing, with all the damages that this can cause. Suffice it to think of the neglect of biological cycles, or a totally inconsiderate fishing. We are here to confirm our no, as we do not want to and cannot tolerate situations like the ones we are experiencing now, which generate irreversible damages”.


The initiative – which also involved local cooperatives of small scale fishermen – was an excellent occasion to communicate to Brussels messages and contents related to fishing that Slow food has always held dear.
