2024 Barbados Fisherfolk Festival

Fisherfolk Month has been rebranded the 'Barbados Fisherfolk Festival!'

The 2024 Barbados Fisherfolk Festival (BARFISH) is slated to become the premier fisherfolk festival in the Caribbean. It has been conceptualised to promote messages of sustainable fisheries in an innovative and inclusive way.

The festival will showcase what it means to live sustainably in a Small Island through the use of food, fashion, film, poetry, music, dance, and real world live demonstrations. Fisherfolk who epitomize sustainable living and are actively involved in building the blue and green economy will share their experiences and knowledge. 

BARFISH is the flagship initiative of the Barbados National Union of Fisherfolk Organisations implemented in collaboration with the Fisheries and Fish Markets Divisions.
