Action Day for Healthy Fisheries

Sylt | Germany | 08/21/2012

Goal of the Event
Demand for sustainable, regional fisheries

Brief description
Action Day for Healthy Fisheries Germany - 20/08/2012 Overfishing of our oceans must be stopped in order to restore marine ecosystems. This is the message that associations are bringing to politicians and to the general public on the holiday island of Sylt (northern Germany) on August 21. The event takes place as part of the European Fish weeks, organized by the OCEAN2012 coalition, of which Slow Food is part. Slow Food Germany, together with the Protestant Church Development Service (EED), the Lighthouse Foundation, Fairoceans and OCEAN2012 are inviting regional representatives of the European parliament to Sylt for a discussion on the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy. On the same day, a human chain in the shape of a fish will be formed on the beach at Kampen (Sylt) as a sign of support to sustainable fishing. A fish soup will be cooked and served, with fish playing the exquisite supporting role in the dish. All parts of the fish will be used for the fresh fish stock and nothing will be wasted - this, too, underlining the importance of fish as a food resource. In an accompanying panel discussion, Ursula Hudson (Slow Food Germany), Dr. Nina Wolff (OCEAN2012), Francisco Mari (EED), Jens Ambsdorf (Lighthouse Foundation) and John King (Söl'ring Hof restaurant, Sylt) will join MEPs to discuss the reform efforts on the EU fisheries policy and the precarious situation of fish stocks worldwide.
