Environment, Eni’s methane platforms as a refuge for marine species

-

The three days, from 24 to 26 June, dedicated to the mussel of Marina di Ravenna, a product of excellence, capable of creating shared value for the whole territory and very linked to its biodiversity, ended. With the end of the restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event has returned to offer the classic sea trip to the platforms. An excursion organized by Eni to appreciate the richness of a marine environment from which the tasty wild mussels and more are obtained. In order to safeguard the submerged parts of the platforms and guarantee a lower resistance to wave motion and sea currents, Eni periodically implements a “cleaning service” of the pylons of the platforms on which the mussels grow spontaneously. Over the years, the submerged structures of the Eni platforms have created an extraordinary habitat in which numerous valuable marine species have found refuge. The boats on a trip this year were joined by the Cestha dinghy, a non-profit research organization whose purpose is environmental protection, which released the sea turtles into the water after having treated them in recent months in the recovery center of Marina of Ravenna. Cestha explained, through its director Simone D’Acunto, the importance of the initiative: “We deal with research and conservation, in particular on the latter we work with fishermen for turtles. We also recover those stranded and which can be sick specimens. Once cured, we put them back into the sea. We care for a public good because wildlife belongs to us all. We have chosen to release the turtles near the platforms as these are a protected oasis from fishing. It is a safe place for their safety. We believe it is the best place for freedom, the wild life of the turtles who will then adapt and choose where to go “. Sea equals mussels. In particular, the mussel of Marina di Ravenna whose distinctive note is precisely its being wild, a characteristic that distinguishes it from farmed mussels. As far as it is concerned, Eni’s Central-Northern District, responsible for methane platforms and their correct maintenance, supports the path to enhance the shellfish as it witnesses the synergy between industrial activities, the environment and the economic development of the territory. Mussels that Sauro Alleati, president of the La Romagnola cooperative in Marina di Ravenna has defined as not good, “the best. It is always the consumer who decides, but I am sure I am not proven wrong. The mussel is called Selvaggia because, not being bred, it is born where it likes “. And so it is born and grows on the pylons of the methane-bearing platforms, which increase in volume during the season precisely because of the mussels that take root there. For structural reasons, the six-legged dog periodically requires a “cleaning service”, which consists precisely in the collection of mussels. On the other hand, for this very reason a new, highly specialized profession was born: that of the underwater mussel collector. “With our underwater experience we are able to collect a good number of wild mussels”, assures Sauro Alleati.
