In the dry of Capo with the trolling rod, a 10-kilogram grouper was caught by Elio Benenati, head of the surveillance service of the nature reserve “Le Montagne delle Felci e dei Porri”. Despite his duties in the surveillance of the Aeolian islands and the continuous rescues of tourists, he also enjoys fishing during the low season. This time, he caught a grouper of rare size. Grouper, also known as dolphinfish, can reach a maximum length of about two meters and a weight of 20 kilograms. In Italian seas, the average weight of catches varies from 3-4 pounds to 8 kilograms, although larger specimens have been caught especially in the Ligurian Sea. In the Aeolian Islands, only small specimens are usually seen for sale, making this catch an exception. Despite the ongoing crisis in the fishing industry, the Aeolian sea continues to be bountiful.
