Palermo, Fish Remains after the Market: Dozens of Seagulls Swarm Viale Campania

Dozens of seagulls attacked Viale Campania in Palermo in the afternoon after the traditional Wednesday market. The birds were attracted by fish and food leftovers left in the street by the merchants. Due to the dirt in the streets, seagulls can be increasingly seen in the city. These birds, often aggressive if bothered, mainly feed on fish, eggs, animal carcasses, and worms. The cleaning interventions take place immediately after the market closes, but the removal of fish remains is the responsibility of the sellers through specialized companies. Recently, a special intervention was required to dispose of tuna remains found in Via Kolbe.
