Lorient Fish Market - everything done to enhance the value of the fish.


La criée de Lorient, tout pour valoriser le... by Lorient-Agglomeration

The French port of Lorient is the largest in the country - boasting annual sales of around €86,000,000 and is the number one langoustine port.  Newlyn is long due a major overhaul of its fish market and fish handling infrastructure to best compete against the likes of Lorient - so looking at how the daily catch is landed, graded and auctioned is a good place to start.  As the port sees it, they add val;ue to the fish form the moment they come ashore.
