Zaia: "We must support the fishermen in the fight against the blue crab"

"The spread of the crustacean must be fought on a large scale and certainly letting it end up in the pot is not decisive but it can still be a way to support those who reluctantly see their life's work ruined every day"

In Veneto “At least 150 tons of Blue Crab have been placed on the market since the beginning of the year. We must support the fishermen, also promoting the food consumption of crab, to allow this 'scourge' to be, at least in part, profitable for those who find themselves with fishing nets full of these crustaceans, certainly not desired”. This was stated by Luca Zaia, president of the Veneto Region, who asked to verify in the six main regional fish markets, Caorle, Venice, Chioggia, Donada, Pila and Scardovari, how much blue crab is marketed.

Zaia then explained: "The economic and productive fabric of our Region has been able to put in place some answers for some months: the main companies that transform the pulp of these crabs into semi-finished or finished products for the trade are from Veneto, as well as having undertaken also an export business. We must now support this battle by encouraging the consumption of Blue Crab-based dishes and products; a promotional activity that I personally embrace and that is starting to spread in the restaurant world. The diffusion of the crustacean must be contrasted on a large scale and certainly letting it end up in the pot is not decisive. But it can still be a way to support those who reluctantly see their life's work ruined every day". “At all levels – he continued – we must support the fishing sector, which is undergoing a real siege. Veneto is moving on several levels, also asking the government to declare a state of emergency and a state of calamity." The Ministry of Agriculture, which I want to thank, has already given an important signal in recent weeks, allocating 2,9 million euros. The primary objective in the face of this calamity which is systematically exterminating mussels and clams, irreversibly damaging entire crops in the valleys and causing damage to the economy of an exhausted fish sector”, concluded the Venetian president.
