“CETARA’S ANCHOVIES”

In Cetara, since ancient times, people have practiced the fishing of anchovies as a consumer food and a staple food of coastal populations. This fishing was practiced with a type of net called ‘menaide’, from 300 to 400 meters long and from 12 to 15 meters wide, being formed from a single sheet to all the same mesh. It allows small anchovies to pass, while the big ones remained entangled. Anchovies entangled in the mesh were collected by hand one by one. The fishing season was between May and September; the catch was salted and stored in barrels. This type of net was replaced in 1920s by ‘lampara’ and then in 1946 by seine.
