Our news

From the president’s desk

The objective of our Syndicate is to sustain the local harvesting and fishing industry so that in 10 years, 20 years…it will still be possible to benefit from this resource: we are extremely careful about maintaining our unique marine biodiversity, making it our business to preserve its genuine quality. We also buy seaweed all over the word. Our work is therefore informed by the common interest of harvesters, fishermen and Administration in order to regulate this harvesting and fishing industry.
