A Slow Fish conversation during the Food Hui Festival.
Slow Fish celebrates responsible artisanal fishing communities. As such, it’s a perfect fit for our Eat New Zealand #KnowYourFisher campaign. Despite being a South Pacific island nation with an exclusive economic zone fifteen times larger than our land area, our fishers have largely become invisible to our eaters, leading to disconnection and problems of social licence. What if, instead, we celebrated these amazing men & women and their incredible bravery to pull our food out of the ocean? How can we support them reconnecting to their communities as a way of telling the unique story of New Zealand kaimoana to our own people and to the world?
For our Slow Fish panel, as part of the FoodHui2020, we will hear from the driving force behind Slow Food Auckland, Anutosh Penny Cusack. It will be an opportunitu to listen to the voices and experiences of a handful of our artisanal fishers who are doing things differently – including Nate Smith from Gravity Fishing, Troy Bramley from Tora Collective and Jim Woods from Beauline.
