Harvesting and Cleansing

The harvesting of bred snails can take place in certain seasons of the year. It can be implemented from Spring to Autumn (if all the snails have matured) and can be done in one single solution or several times: relative to the type of marketing that is going to take place.

Harvested snails must be cleaned in wooden crates or netted cages for at least 8 days prior to sale. After this period the selection process of suitable subjects for packing into sacks or raffia bags can take place -  always allowing complete ventilation of the containers.
