Stop fishing: what is it for?
Fishing ban is a provision that is enforced every year Protect the widest range of marine species To promote its reproduction. measures have been implemented in stages In various regions and especially related to the Adriatic Sea. The closure of fishing was started only about forty years ago.

Criticisms of Coldiretti
Coldiretti Imprespesca complains that “the structure of the 2023 fishing stop has not yet responded needs of companies nor those stability of the main species National fishing targets, so much so that the condition of some resources, which have to be closed at a critical stage of life, have not improved much despite efforts and restrictions in the 38 years of fishing closures. National fleet sees contraction About 33% fishing units and 18,000 jobs were lost,
Coldiretti Impresapesca therefore says that fishing bans “should not only be a restriction of fishing time, a measure already abused by community regulations, but also to protect target resources at the most important biological stages, such as the birth and development of young”. should aim to achieve a level of protection that does not detract from attention to the economic sustainability of the fishing companies involved in the closure measure and the maintenance of coastal areas and the social sustainability of the many economies linked to fish production such as trade, catering , tourism and shipbuilding”.
