Catalonia hosts a 'Science to Practice' event focused on mushroom hunting regulation in Spain

A new Science to Practice event of Mushrooms & Truffles will be held on 19th November in Solsona (Lleida) at the headquarters of the Forest Science and Technology Centre of Catalonia (CTFC), organiser of the meeting. It is aimed at forest owners, managers, forest policy makers and also students, who will have the opportunity to know about different examples of mushroom hunting regulation in Spain, aiming to discuss their legal framework as well as the opportunities derived with their application.

The conference also will address the fact that several initiatives for mushroom collection regulation have emerged from national and regional legal frameworks, most of them based on a pay-per-use system. These regulated mushroom hunting grounds are mostly owned by public entities with little private investment. This makes us wonder why private owners do not set up pay mushroom hunting areas.

In addition, it should be noted that the development of mycosylviculture will allow for better forest management that will increase mushroom productivity of the forest. Yet, in the current legal framework, it would be difficult for landowners to capture the benefits of this improved management.

The programme of the day is available here.
