We’re now in a moment of record consumption of fish in the history of humanity, which has made it more important than ever to support artisan fisherman and their traditional practices which give respect to the sea and it’s ecosystem. This Saturday, January 24, more than just a lunch, the team behind Slow Food Punta del Diablo invites us to spend an afternoon together with these fishermen to take care of the beach, at Playa de los Pescadores, in Punta del Diablo. Invited guests to the event will include chef Laura Rosano, national representative of Slow Food Uruguay, and Rodrigo Garcia Pingaro, representative of the Organization of Conservation of Cetaceans, a promoter of the declaration of the entire marine economic zone as a sanctuary for whales and dolphins.
