Mollusc Fishing by Rimini’s Pier


Mollusc Fishing in Rimini, by the pier towards Rock Island



Go down towards RImini's port in the early morning, and you're likely to see small groups of people wading around in the shallow water, near the rocks, looking for vongole (clams) or Cannellini (long straw-shaped molluscs).
