Lombardy Region with the help of Province of Varese, the Municipality of Luino and the Ticino Canton organizes a Round Table: "From Lake Ceresio to the Ocean without barriers!"

In this event, we will speak about fish, paying particular attention to the species that have to migrate from the rivers to the sea in a part of their life cycle. The meeting is open to all the local people, local political, cantonal and regional representatives, fishermen and their associations, anglers and the press. This is an opportunity to point out not only the environmental potentiality of the lake and river fish but also its working, gastronomic, commercial and sporting importance.

We shall talk about this on May 5th in Luino, in the splendid Verbania Palace facing Lake Maggiore , during the inauguration day of the highest fish ladder in Europe (23 meters), realized on December 2013.

The meeting will open at 11.30 am with a welcome and introduction of the regional agriculture Minister Gianni Fava and the Commissioner of the Province Dario Galli.

The European Fisheries Fund, Cariplo Foundation, the Province of Varese,the the Ticino Canton and ENEL Produzione have contributed at the project realization.

The Tresa River connects the Lake Lugano with Lake Maggiore, the Ticino and Po River until the dam of Isola Serafini (Piacenza). Here a new fish ladder will be built suitable for the Italian sturgeon in the improvement of the LIFE project CON.FLU.PO (www.life-conflupo.eu). It will re-open permanently and forever the river corridor Lake Ceresio-Ticino-Tresa-Verbano-Po with the Adriatic Sea.

The free movement of migratory fish along the rivers and lakes assure their survival but it also allows a spending review of the public resources in the long term. In fact the natural route that for millions of years assured the presence of fish in rivers and lakes, is now open again.

Open buffet, strictly based on fish at zero distance, caught and prepared by fishermen of Lake Maggiore.
