Slow Fish in Action

Lake Garda Carpione

Carpione (salmo carpio) is a salmonid fish that weighs about 1-2 kg and only lives in the deep waters of Lake Garda. It is fished with deep-water nets, but has now become an extremely rare fish. Up until the 1960s, dozens of tons of carpioni were fished every year, today this has dropped to less than 100 kg per year. The Presidium aims to draw attention to an excellent-quality species, which runs the risk of disappearing forever if nothing is done to restore its spawning areas, by removing environmental obstacles and possibly trying with artificial reproduction.

Production area
Lake Garda (Brescia, Trento and Verona provinces)

Carpione is fished starting from September, but the best time is October
