Elitsa Petrova is the Director of the Institute of Fish Resources, the oldest maritime institute in Varna. She explains that Rapa whelk is an invasive species but also an economic resource. Тhe species should be "jointly managed by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean and Black Sea countries, using a holistic approach".
