Lagoons and “Sacche” - Tenuta Ca' Zen

Lagoons and “Sacche”

Inside the reeds, great nesting places for birds and natural filter purification of the water, we enter in the lagoon. The lagoon is a lake of salt water, in same part only a few centimeters deep, bounded toward the sea by sand dunes on the river side by mud and sand banks regularly submerged by the tides and “bonelli” Island of local mud.

Where the waves penetrate shallow muddy Island are formed in the branches of the river.
Both in the lagoon and in the Sacca, shellfish and mollusks are raised, and the young fish are seed in the Valle.

There are several lagoon in the Po Delta: Caleri, Vallona, Barbamarco, Batteria, Burcio, Basson e Bonelli Levante. “Sacche” are only 2: Canarin e Scardovari, known for raising mollusks and clams.
