A takeoff of the Slow Food movement, Italy’s Slow Fish is a similar style movement that looks to preserve the fragile balance between human fishing and marine and river ecosystems. Held every odd numbered year, the Slow Fish festival in Genoa celebrates small scale fishing operations as well as those chefs and restaurants that encourage species diversity.
This year, for the very first time, the Slow Fish festival is coming stateside with a special visit planned for New Orleans. The visit will highlight the threats independent Louisiana fishermen face, as well as highlight fishing operations throughout the nation.
