If like me, you love your seafood, and would like to keep on enjoying it for years to come, the Slow Fish Festival on Sunday 15 April 2018 from 10am to 4pm is the event for you. Complete with a local seafood market with seaweed, sea urchins, sardines, snapper, rock lobster, abalone and more, move between the fresh fish mongers, delicious seafood dishes, craft beer, wine and entertainment.

If you care about a sustainable seafood industry, come along to listen and learn and savour the catch at Spotswood-Kingsville RSL and grounds, 16 Mary Street, Spotswood (entry via 63 The Avenue, Spotswood).

Ashley Davis & Sascha Rust

To protect what we love from pollution, global warming, illegal and unsustainable fishing and government regulation, you'll have insight into the steps needed to save our seafood and aquaculture not just for now, but the future. Do all this while celebrating and savouring the catch on our doorstep on the day.

The 'fish tales' talks program on all things fishy, from local history to ecology will be announced shortly. Learn how to forage for seaweed on Port Phillip Bay and meet the women in fishing, and heaps more. Bring the whole family as the kids can enjoy some on-land sea adventuring in a dedicated activity space.
