Rainfall Blocks Traditional Sea Salt Production in Sečovlje

The heavy rainfall in July set back salt production at Sečovlje on the Slovenian coast for several months. No salt has been produced so far, but production manager Dario Sau remains optimistic, hoping the production would pick up in August and September.

Sau hopes the changeable weather, which has hindered the traditional salt production this month, will improve, so that the harvest could start in the first half of August.



He expects they would be able to produce 1,500-2,000 tonnes of salt, which would exceed the company's half-year plan.


Last year, they produced 3,170 tonnes of sea salt and 25 tonnes of salt flower.


The Sečovlje salt pans are one of several Slovenian sites included on the Ramsar List of Wetlands of International Importance.

The salt pans are owned by the national telco Telekom Slovenije, one of Slovenia's biggest companies.
