The Calich produces

The Calich lagoon, as well as being part of the Porto Conte Regional Natural Park and being a special protection area under the "Birds" Policy, has a really interesting fish production potential.

It has always represented a source of sustenance and income for the local community and a fishermen's cooperative is active which carries out its fishing activity under a regional concession. In the lagoon, mullets and especially Mugil cephalus are mainly caught, but also eels (Anguilla anguilla), sea bream (Sparus auratus), sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and two-banded sea bream (Diplodus spp.). Over the years, given the favorable environmental characteristics, the breeding of bivalves such as mussels (Mytilus galloprovincialis), oysters (Ostrea edulis) and clams (Ruditapes philippinarum) has been experimented on several occasions.

In particular, thanks to the Retralags project, it has been possible to further deepen the studies that have given interesting and encouraging results on the lagoon’s productive potential for mussels and oysters.
