Neptune, ancient fishing village, over the centuries has been one of the landmarks of maritime , for the Romans , which in addition to the summer holidays, frequented the coast for trade of the classical period . It is not only due to a mere purpose of exchange , the town of Nettuno , but it contains a kaleidoscope of romantic varied aspects . The origin of the ancient Latin and make it a point of considerable historical interest , starting from the Volscian people , who inhabited these areas in earlier times than the Romans, who have always lived as a health resort and holiday village.

The ancient Antium ( original name of Neptune) , saw the center of commercial life in the current maritime fortress , historically used as a warehouse for the storage of goods coming from the ports of the Mediterranean. The natural economic life of the town of Nettuno has delivered this place in history as the current continuation of the old Antium . Neptune has always been a city considered to be an important religious center : can be viewed the remains of temples dedicated to the more classical deities : from Hercules to Apollo, until you get to simply understandable Neptune, from which the fishing village takes its name. These historical relics reside in the foundations of Sangallo Fortress

The Ichthyogenic Experimental
Marine Centre (CISMAR) belongs to the Department of Ecological and Biological Sciences (DEB, formerly DECOS) of the University of Tuscia (Viterbo, Italy) and is located in the Natural Reserve “Le
Saline di Tarquinia”, a coastal wetland constituted by salt marshes that were previously used to produce salt.
The primary goals of the Center are the study, the evaluation and monitoring of marine biodiversity of coastal and transitional environments. In particolar, its activity is focused on monitoring chemical and physical parameters of marine ecosystems, the phenotypic and genetic characterization of marine animals populations, applying genetics and behavioural biology to marine animal population management and fishing resources. In this respect, one main action is the controlled reproduction of target species for restocking purposes.
