Mussel Farms on Lago di Varano

Mussel Farms on Lago di Varano

Lago di Varano in Gargano, Puglia, the largest lake in southern Italy, is separated from the Adriatric Sea by just a small strip of land.
 
During a boat trip on the lake, I saw rows upon rows of these crossed, wooden sticks, which are mussel farms.  Underneath each crossed, wooden stick is a line which mussels attach themselves to.  Seagulls perch on these sticks, knowing what lies underneath.
