Pellestrina

Pellestrina is a strip of land. The island lies between Venice lagoon to the east and the Adriatic Sea to the west. Many pellestrinotti (the inhabitants of Pellestrina) work as fishermen, as is the tradition of the island. Due to new and strict regulations in the world of fishing, many of them now devote themselves to the cultivation of peoci (mussels). The lagoon ecosystem has been seriously impacted over the years by pollution, unhelpful policies, the transit of large ships, the excavation of deep canals and the construction of the MOSE. For this reasons the lagoon is losing its original flora and fauna which also explains why many fishermen are quitting their traditional fishing habits.
