The mackerel paradox

slowfood mark


Torino, Italy

Event local time


September 22nd at 14:00 in your time zone

Free event

Mackerel is a type of blue fish, high in nutrients and rich in proteins, fatty acids and minerals that are precious for our health.

Nevertheless, in Norway – as well as in other parts of the world – mackerel is mainly used to produce fish flour and oil, which in turn are used as animal feed. A proper paradox, and an example of local culture and cuisine being turned upside down.  

The event is held in collaboration with Iyafa and Lighthouse Foundation

Speakers :

  • Frode Stronen, fisherman and environmentalist. Initiator and coordinator of the Fiskfrafjorden cooperative, that unites the last artisan fishers of the Hardanger Fjord.
  • Thor Oivind Jensen, researcher and specialist on consumer behaviour and Slow Food Bergen board member.

Free entry while seats last. We advise you to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure a place.
