Aquaculture in Tuscany

Fishing, aquaculture and agriculture are key economic activities in Tuscany +and fishing is a major source of income in the areas with industrial decline and low employment rates.
This film shows the devolpment of sustainable fish farming in Tuscany. It was made specifically for AQUA2006 - the joint conference of the European Aquaculture Society and the World Aquaculture Society. This film (part 2) provides a good summary of the history of modern aquaculture, as well as lovely images of this beautiful Italian region, around Orbetello and Ansedonia in southern Tuscany.

Fish production in Orbetello

Fish production in Orbetello, Maremma, is an Italian aquaculture success story. COOPAM (the local fish farm Cooperative) commercializes around 20.000 tonnes Sea Bass, Sea Bream and Maigre (Ombrina), every year - earning a reputation for quality fish.

Modern fish farming has been developed along this coast and the local territory of nearby Orbetello using these ancient techniques and traditions. The Roman Emperors got their Sea Bass from here...

In the 1970's the 360,000 sq meters of land beside the lagoon of Orbetello in the Maremma became a fish farm, and together with its twin farms “La Cosa” and "Ittima" it has promoted the modern intensive aquaculture of Sea Bass, Sea Bream and the precious Maigre (Ombrina)
