What is a Vongolara?

The iron dredger located at the bottom of the vongolara is lowered onto the sandy bottom of the sea and then towed in reverse. A jet of water facilitates the advancement and washing of the sand inside the dredger. The collected material, the clam, is selected by size and only those over 22 mm that have already been reproduced several times are retained so the marine balance is not affected. They are then processed and bagged directly on board the ships in order to be delivered to the wholesale fish market on their return to Chioggia.
