The Art, Music, Cuisine, and Poetry Allied with the Sea

Torino-Lingotto Fiere

Not only fishermen, politicians and environmental organizations have a say in sustainable fishing,

the selection of fish offered to consumers, and which recipes from the local gastronomy best celebrate those fish. Artists, chefs, directors, musicians, and poets all offer complementary visions that can be highly effective in spreading awareness through different media. In this forum, we present Senegalese artists who use abandoned wooden boats as canvases, representing the stories of fish and fishermen in their art. We will also hear from Ukranian chefs who include lesser-known freshwater fish on their menus.
