The mussels of Taranto



The delicate mussels of Taranto are renown for centuries. 2011 however mussel farming had to be ceased as the bay in front of the city suffered from massive chemical pollution caused by the activities of a steel concern. Cancer rates in the population of Taranto increased. Years after the dioxinscandal happened today few mussel banks in the “mar piccolo” are farmed again, trying to follow environmentally sustainable principles.
