The land has its problems, and the sea its own: it’s tempting to think of them separately, but the sea and coastal regions are profoundly interconnected and interdependent.

Slow Fish Coast to Coast is an invitation to widen our outlook beyond the seas and oceans, to not consider them as something separate from our life on land. Coastal ecosystems are the junction where we can most easily see the multifaceted nature of these connections, and considering their fragility in a holistic perspective is vital for the development of system solutions to the great challenges of our time. From our carbon emissions and their acidifying effect on the oceans, to the health of plankton and their fundamental importance for the oxygen we breathe, an the protection of those coastal ecosystems which make long stretches of our planet’s coastlines habitable and productive, allowing these regions to be bastions of human culture–not least in the form of fishing.


  • Mariasole Bianco, marine conservation expert
  • Pierre Mollo, biologist and researcher specializing in plankton
  • Jacopo Pasotti, journalist
