Slow Fish can’t happen without community-based Fish Harvesters voices.  Sustainable Fisheries Foundation has set up this fund to help us bring these hard working folks to San Francisco. Our friends at the Marine Fish Conservation Network have generously offered to match any donation we receive, up to $3000! So every dollar you donate gets doubled. Please consider donating a small amount, this will make a BIG impact!
