DATA ON PRODUCTION OF FISH VALLEY Doga - Caposile
Following a meeting with Riccardo Cabras, who runs the fish peddling Dogà Valley of the brothers Giovanni and Giancarlo Zacchello Caposile and that for years it is related to VenezianoGas to accompany the difficult and fascinating capture of fish from sustainable fisheries for Members, it was possible to build this board, as required by the September plenary (see minutes). Richard also has provided numerous gas in Veneto, Lombardy, Emilia Romagna fish (see website http://www.pescebiologico.com), although now discontinued this activity.
A. The present situation of the valley
The valley is the largest of the lagoon (1685 ha) and extensive fish farming activities (with a potential production of 1,200 tonnes / year of fish) employs 10-12 people. This activity is now threatened with closure by the "owners" because it does not guarantee coverage of the costs. In the current business of the fish distribution structure, the downstream fish is not adequately valued for its organoleptic quality and environmental sustainability, because it is equated to the factory farms of the south-eastern Mediterranean, however, not having the ability to overcome the seasonality and randomness of the collection from the valley. The use of forms of direct distribution to consumers aware of this value, it can be a survival of the road and the occupation in the valley, otherwise destined to abandonment and degradation.
B. The production cycle
It is extensive farming, in which they play only natural factors for the life of fish confined within the valley. They are not administered or drugs or food, because it is technically impossible to distribute them to such a large extent, if not to unjustifiable costs. The only stage at which it is administered feed is in the phase of growth of juveniles in a separate tank from the rest of the valley, until it reaches sufficient size to not be eaten by the other "guests the greatest". The juvenile is from Puglia or from France and is certified organic (bream-sea bass); Also the coop San Marco di Burano provides capture juvenile fish (mullet various). It is the organic certification was abandoned for burden involved, but the characteristics of the production cycle, which required the certification have been retained. The only "artificial" element that has been introduced is the dissemination in the lakes of the "cape valley round", provided by the coop San Marco di Burano, which are greedy sea bream, in order to promote a coloring of the plumage of pink sea bream / golden.
The hunting activities in the last two years (hunting in barrel and in the valley) is almost zero and is no longer a proposal for a fee, but practiced only by the "owners" and their friends.
Routine production is composed of sea bream, sea bass, cefalame (Otragani, boseghe, foxes, others of less value) and eels (in small quantities); randomly, and not for breeding, are caught in the valley and marketed: crabs (masanete), aquadelle (anguele), Passarini and other small fish.
The list and the production will be available in days, as soon as the air and water temperature will be decreased to values autumn. A brief, so that we can initiate an order that will be repeated throughout the season of "fremia", ie from October to January, the first of the coldest periods of winter, when the fish are protected in the warmer layers of the lagoon.
Richard intends to launch a direct retail activity of the downstream fish Caposile, along with other products and sustainable fisheries producers, on which question VenezianoGas sharing and support also organizational. This project will be the subject of another sheet to be submitted to all, as soon as they defined some operational details.
