G@tto: On SALE in South Sardinia

August 23, 2010

Hands full of sand...

... of sardinian sand.

One video and a few pictures, taken 5 days ago in the morning at the mouth of the river
Flumendosa, closed at this time of the year
for reasons related to farmed fish, particularly
grey mullets (muggine-i),
whose roe pouch is very appreciated as a delicacy under the
(italian) name of 'bottarga'.


Italian river Flumendosa, rises in the Gennargentu Mountains in southeastern Sardinia, Italy, and flows
127 km
(79 miles) west and southeast, entering the Tyrrhenian Sea near Muravera and Villaputzu.
The Ente Autonomo del Flumendosa, a dam and irrigation project, was established in 1946 to develop
the resources of the Flumendosa River basin.

Far away, the marina of Porto Corallo.

If you're curious enough and want to know about the river's basin geomorphology, well,
help yourself HERE.
