Slow Fish

Sheila Dillon tracks two Cornish oyster fisherman, Rob Searle and Tim Vinnicombe, as they travel to the 'Slow Fish' gathering held in Genoa.

Sheila Dillon follows two Cornish oyster fisherman, Rob Searle and Tim Vinnicombe, as they travel to the 'Slow Fish' gathering in Genoa - the world's largest gathering of fishermen and women from around the world, organised by the Slow Food movement.

Rob and Tim are part of a team attempting to save the tradition of gathering native oysters from the Fal Estuary. The oysters are fished in 200-year-old sailing boats as no mechanical power is permitted on the fishery. By taking their catch to Genoa, they hope to raise the profile of the native oyster and create a market that will help ensure the survival of a traditional and sustainable form of fishing.
