Too much waiting
For years we have been waiting for the approval by the Veneto Region of an adequate regional plan for the management and containment of ichthyophagous birds, with particular regard to the cormorant but, at least for the moment, we only listen to the cry of pain of our fishermen and our valley farmers, forced to abandon their activities due to the continuous incursions suffered by the winged predators who are infesting and plundering undisturbed all our lagoons and all our waterways.
Protection of assets
We have seen drafts of the Plan circulating in recent years, probably created by those with an ideological approach according to which the cormorants should be protected more than our production activities or the residual fish fauna remaining. Our fishermen and our valley farmers have to spend huge sums out of their own pockets to equip themselves with tools and works of dissuasion and passive defense without being able to touch the winged marauders.
No signal from Venice
We have already written: Regional Council of Veneto, if you are there, give it a shot! For the moment no signal is arriving from the lagoon's underworld. We ask ourselves what kind of signal the regional council needs to wake up from its torpor. Meanwhile, the fish fauna is devastated and production activities are forced to close (ACR-CONFAVI-ACV-FCR).
