Ittiturismo La Terrazza

LA SACCALEVA

If, on a summer night, you find yourself exploring the Gulf of Trieste from the top of the “Carso”, you are surprised to see the myriad of lights scattered here and there to interrupt the darkness of the sea.
They are the lights of the lamps.

Ittiturismo La Terrazza Muggia Trieste,
A fascinating spectacle that from afar does not reveal the hard and hectic work of the fishermen who, using the “saccaleva” fishing method, used in Trieste since the 1930s, bring the blue fish to our tables.

Thanks to this technique, the fish arrives fresh, whole and shiny, something that does not happen with other fishing methods, such as trawling.

Ittiturismo La Terrazza – Seafood restaurant Muggia Trieste
The night, every fishing boat goes to monitor with the help of the on-board tools the fishing area, the indispensable intuition of the boat capitain and the experience of the crew, are the binomial for a good caught. Once the herd has been identified and the lamps are switched on, the purse network is lowered which at the end closes at the bottom and rises. Hence the term “saccaleva”.
When the fish is now concentrated in the cul de sac, through the bucket net, it is brought by boat, after which it is sorted.

GOOD FOOD AT THE SCOPE OF EVERYONE!
