first_img Share Image via:eatfishdaydominica.comOrganizers of the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative 4th Annual Eat Fish Day, held in the community of Coulibistrie on Sunday, November 6th, 2011, are describing the event as a major success.The Eat Fish Day which was conceptualized by the St. Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative in 2008 has now become an annual event, gaining much popularity among both locals and visitors.Fisheries Officer, Mr Riviere Sebastian who was involved in coordinating the event told Dominica Vibes News that the aim of the event which is to encourage more persons to eat fish is now being realized.“The idea of the Eat Fish Day basically is to encourage people to eat more fish because we think that people eat a lot more other protein products. And I think fish is a highly nourishable protein product so we are encouraging more people to eat more fish. Secondly, there is a huge economic buzz in various communities because fishermen are able to sell fish, also the vendors who sell fish on that day”. The highlight of Sunday’s event was fish dishes prepared in various styles and forms, patrons therefore had a large variety of dishes to choose from prepared by chefs and experts from Venezuela, Japan, Cuba, Dominica, the French, and the United States of America. Mr Sebastian said that the various embassies who were represented at the event also had the opportunity to showcase a little of their culture on that day.Plans are already being made to host the fifth Eat Fish Day in 2012, although the venue is yet to be determined.“One thing about next year’s event is that it is going to be a much bigger event. We are going to have some special groups from Belgium and France. We’ve already started plans for next year’s event. We haven’t decided the location yet but we normally rotate the communities, but it will be in one of the larger communities”. Every year the event is being held in a different community. The first Eat Fish Day was held in the community of Bioche, the second in Dublanc, the third; Colihaut and this year; Coulibistrie.The planning committee of the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative is expressing their gratitude to the many persons who contributed to the success of the event, especially the sponsors.“I would like to say thanks to everybody, all the patrons who came, and all the embassies especially the l coordinator for the Eat Fish Day event. The embassies in particular did a very good job because every year people look forward to eating fish prepared by various embassies and Mr Paul came in and did a very good job as the President of the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative”.The communities making up the St Peter’s Fisheries Cooperative include Bioche, Coulibistrie, Colihaut and Dublanc.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!
