A proposal has been presented by the Democratic Party in Sicily to suspend sea urchin fishing for three years in order to allow regional populations to recover. The bill would only affect recreational fishing, not commercial fishing. The regional government would be responsible for setting implementation criteria, penalties for violations, and a plan for repopulating sea urchins. The proposal aims to protect the species from extinction and preserve the marine ecosystem.
