Slow Fish 2021 + Slow Food Northeast Gathering

March 18-21, 2021 | New Hampshire

After careful consideration and discussion with partners, we have decided to bottle up the great energy of Slow Fish + Slow Food Northeast Gathering 2020 and carry it over to 2021 —
same time, same place.

Adaptation is core to the growing Slow Fish network around North America. At Slow Fish 2016 in New Orleans: floods. Prior to Slow Fish 2018: wildfires. And Slow Fish 2020 in New Hampshire: a pandemic that forced us to postpone the event a year. 

At every turn, we found a way to adapt, unite, and generate tons of positive energy toward good, clean, and fair seafood. We shared stories, explored different solutions and celebrated!

Slow Fish 2020 is no different. We’ve balled up all of the energy generated in the build-up to the event in New Hampshire and are packaging it in a webinar series that begins on March 20 at 1 p.m. EST.

Slow Fish Crew Together Webinar Series

The Covid-19 pandemic has tested the resilience, resolve, and recovery potential of fishing communities and seafood eaters both domestically and abroad. Resilience hinges on adaptability to a situation that changes every day and shifts the parameters, even as folks are finding new ways of selling and eating seafood. Join us for ‘Slow Fish Crew Together,’ a webinar series discussing where the fishing community is at during this time and how we can move forward together.

The April 17 webinar explored resilience in the fishing community in a discussion with:

  • a fisherman whose online sales havetripled in the last month but faces uncertainty about the upcoming season of fishing in Bristol Bay, Alaska
  • a Wampanoag chef/restaurant owner who also fishes commercially facing multiple challenges beyond Covid-19
  • a U.K. restaurant owner and Slow Food leader closely tied to local fishing communities and how they are adapting to the pandemic
  • the executive director of Slow Food San Francisco and Slow Fish team leader who will discuss the critical importance of community building in these times.
