Tenders for Controversial Fish Farms to Go Ahead

Despite mounting concerns over the potential threats to local wildlife, especially the endangered Mediterranean monk seal, the government is pushing forward with tenders for fish farms near Pentakomo. Critics demand a comprehensive environmental impact assessment to address the risks, while the Auditor Office suggests insufficient scientific evaluation of the environmental impact. Environmental groups are advocating for a delay in the project until a thorough assessment is conducted to safeguard the region’s delicate marine ecosystems and endangered species.
