Blue crab: emergency becomes resource

Blueat sustainable fisheries project, also aimed at equal opportunities

18, Apr 2024

Transforming an emergency for the marine ecosystem into an economic resource for the fish market: this is the cardinal principle behind Blueat, the sustainable fishing project of the benefit company Mariscadoras srl., dedicated to researching new management scenarios for alien species such as the swimmer crab - also known as blue crab - that are spreading in the Mediterranean due to the transformation of the marine environment. Their proliferation is in fact endangering the survival of native resources and, consequently, the jobs of thousands of families who live off small-scale coastal fishing and seaside tourism.
