23/07/2015: Italians annoyed over the size of clams they can have with their spaghetti
Image: Think YUM!
The EU has been criticised recently for imposing a minimum size for fishing clams in the Mediterranean. Italian press reports that these rules limit the ability to enjoy the traditional dish of spaghetti with clams.

EU regulation does not aim to ban but to preserve this delicious traditional dish. Legislation on minimum size seeks to preserve this vulnerable species and to ensure the maintenance of the stock in the future.
