Marco Sammicheli, Vecchiano
In Ripafratta (Pisa) Serchio River is interrupted by a small dam that stops sea run migratory fish, among which there are several endangered species. All competent authorities have supported the project for the construction of a fish passage which took a very long process, many interrupted years and no work has been done yet.
Alleanza Pescatori Ricreativi wants to raise awareness on this issue. On WFMD, the public met with authorities, stakeholders and media, in the dam site, intending to call for the reactivation of the project and its realization.
Event: Celebrate the World Fish Migration Day, preserve Val Mastallone river!
