Parliamentary questions
20 September 2017
P-005855-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Matteo Salvini (ENF)

 Subject:  Mussel farming at risk in the Gulf of La Spezia
 Answer(s) 

The extremely high temperatures recorded in summer 2017 have overheated the waters of the Gulf of La Spezia, resulting in the deaths of many of the mussels cultivated there.

The La Spezia Mussel Farmers’ Cooperative complains that more than 50% of the product and more than 60% of the ‘seed’ has been destroyed, the total damage being estimated at more than one million euros. The cooperative states that it has lost more than 1 400 tonnes of product, and because of the destruction of ‘seed’, production will also be compromised in the years ahead by the absence of juveniles.

Mussel farmers in La Spezia suggest that, in order to avoid any recurrence of such incidents, a plan should be instituted which makes it possible, when necessary, to oxygenate the waters of the Gulf through openings in the breakwater, which would facilitate exchange between internal and external waters.

— Has Italy applied for compensation for mussel farmers who have suffered losses?

— Has Italy asked for EU funding for measures to prevent or limit damage to mussel production caused by events such as the heat wave of summer 2017?
