The slow food movement is the antithesis to fast food — slow lifestyles, shared local produce and clean and environmentally friendly production. And Slow Food Melbourne is celebrating all of this at its latest event, a locally focused seafood festival happening this April.

Slow Fish Festival: Save Our Seafood is all about savouring the catch on our doorstep. As we rely on our bays and oceans to provide a constant supply of seafood, the festival is advocating eating sustainably and locally — particularly, the seafood from Port Phillip Bay.

Alongside a lineup of educational talks, the festival will feature a whole host of tasty treats from under the sea. There'll be delicacies like sea urchin, abalone and skewered yabbies, as well as your classic go-to fish and chips.

Cooking the produce will be some of Melbourne's best chefs, including Anchovy's Thi Le, Frank Camorra from Movida Aqui and Rosa Mitchell from Rosa's Canteen — who will also be hosting cooking demonstrations to inspire mid-week dinners.

To complete the feast, there'll be range of craft beers and wines available.

Slow Fish Festival will run from 10am–4pm.
