Research fellow Emma Lee at Dark Mofo

DarkMofoCultural fisheries is taking an exciting new turn in Tasmania with the Palawa Fire Pits event at Dark Mofo’s Winter Feast.  Over six nights, a range of members from the diverse Aboriginal Tasmanian communities will host a cultural evening with Dr Emma Lee in attendance each night.  A free feed of Indigenous wild-catch will be included in the event, as ceremonially caught Indigenous wild-catch cannot be on-sold.  The event will test the public appetite for cultural fisheries and the establishment of a food tourism industry in Tasmania.  This is the first time that Indigenous wild-catch will be part of a major Tasmanian festival and the ticketed event has already sold out with a waiting list rapidly filling up.
