The Bay of Trieste is a shallow marginal sea, the northernmost part of the AdriaticSea surrounded by land on three sides. As it contains relatively little water, lessthan some large lakes, it is extremely sensitive to ecological changes. The geomorphologicalfacts warn us that the possibilities for its exploitation are very limited.In future, a very careful, thoughtful, and balanced approach to dealing with its naturalresources will be essential. Given the current lack of any long-term developmentalvision, it appears that we are not sufficiently conscious of this fact.
