Recently restored with European funds, the Fishermen's House of Cavallino Treporti hosts active fishermen cooperatives in our lagoon and our sea. It is the first consortium approach in the area, with 150 employees dedicated to small lagoon and coastal fishing (from 5 meters up to 14/15 meters for fishing at sea). The activities are 100% artisanal, with very low environmental impact. Various fishing tools are used, and the contact is hand-to-fish; no trawl nets are used. The work is daily, ensuring the fish is fresh for the day.
From every gesture of these fishing artisans, their passion for their work, the expertise passed down from generation to generation, and the creativity that drives them to find solutions to problems created by climate change and the invasion of alien species are evident.
