TASTE YOUR CARIBBEAN – The experience of the Vigía Chico Fishing Cooperative".

The Taste your Caribbean Campaign has been developed in three Biosphere Reserves in Colombia and Mexico to spread the principles of sustainable consumption, stimulating the creation of links between small-scale producers and consumers and promoting the appreciation of gastronomic traditions, culture and diversity of the territory. In Mexico, the campaign focuses on promoting responsible consumption and fishing of the Mexican Caribbean Spiny Lobster.

The Campaign is being developed within the framework of the European Union-funded project “Slow Fish Caribe: Strengthening conservation and sustainable use models in Caribbean protected areas linked to Slow Food,” implemented in the Colombian archipelago of San Andrés, Providencia and Santa Catalina, where the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve is located, and along the Mexican coast of Quintana Roo, where the Sian Ka’an and Banco Chichorro Biosphere Reserves are located. It was launched in different dialogue spaces in Colombia and Mexico, in collaboration with project partners (ACUA Foundation, CORALINA, Amigos de Sian K’an, Colectividad Razonatura) and in collaboration with local organizations and public institutions.
