About the project LIFE for LASCA

Fisheries research institute of Slovenia in collaboration with the Italian partner and local fishing clubs will try to prevent the extinction of South European nase [Lasca] (Protochondrostoma genei). This will be attempted by breeding of Lasca in captivity and reintroduction of specimens into tributaries of the Vipava River. Vipava river basin is the only Nature 2000 site for this species in Slovenia.
