Photographer's Note

The salt pans are essentially an artificial environment, constructed over the centuries wresting land from the sea, through the creation of new tanks and moving the original shoreline of several kilometers. Although artificially formed, the salt riproducolo a natural environment: that of the lagoon, which, although in different forms, pre-existed the creation of salt.
It is therefore shallow, warm, and variable salinity, from the sea and very salty, wherever they may live only a few organisms, including the Halobacterium, some of the most primitive living organisms.
All bodies of salt are therefore to a lagoon, with some variations due to the presence of precisely sovrassalate areas (although even in nature we find the "natural salt" where we have coastal ponds that dissaccano leaving deposits of salt). We will then many species of molluscs, crustaceans, polychaete worms, and of course a rich algal vegetation. Remember the note of the crustaceans Artemia salina, adapted to living in water sovrassalate.
The fish, at least in the tanks so-called "fridde", ie those whose salinity differs little from that of the sea, are very numerous. Bass, bream, mullet, are the fish most commonly raised.
