(ANSA) – GENOA, 08 MAR – Diesel fuel for fishing at the port distributor in Sestri Levante from the price of 0.967 yesterday has jumped to 1.147 euros per liter today. No fishing boat has refueled today as since midnight all the boats have remained in their respective moorings for the general strike of the category that will see thousands of fishermen protesting against the price of the so-called “subsidized diesel” tomorrow in Rome in front of Montecitorio. With the lamparas still standing waiting for the anchovy fishing to restart, the biggest inconveniences are for trawling which requires powerful engines with daily consumption ranging from 200 to 500 liters of diesel per day. ‘ ‘For these reasons we stopped – says Alessandro Capelli of Anapi Pesca Liguria – following the protest of the large fishing industries of southern Italy where over 30 thousand people live from fishing. In Liguria today all the fishing boats have stopped and so it will be tomorrow too. It is not so much a protest but a fact given that the daily expenses exceed the earnings ”. (HANDLE).
