Slow Fish Caribe

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

Launched in 2017, Slow Fish Caribe involves several Caribbean countries,

including Mexico, Colombia, Honduras, Barbados, and Costa Rica. It aims to strengthen and disseminate models of conservation and responsible consumption in protected areas and to care for marine and coastal biodiversity. The two hearts of the project are the Seaflower Reserve in Colombia and the Sian Ka’an and Banco Chinchorro biosphere reserves in Mexico. The protagonists of the project (which is financed by the European Union and led by Slow Food, in collaboration with local partner organizations) are the communities of fishers, gatherers, and artisan producers from these territories. We will have the chance to meet them, listen to their stories, and hear about the progress they made in their first year of work.
