    Scallops

    Our scallops are fished off the Paimpol and Saint-Brieuc bays. They spend a few days in oxygenated containers before the freight forwarding in order to degravel them. Indeed, you will often find sand in scallops of fish shops because they are fished with dredgers on sand banks. The dredger turn over the sand in the water and scallops do not have time to close themselves before being carried by the dredger. We package scallops in wooden hampers for the best transport conditions.

    Clams and hard shell clams

    They are dredged on the Brittany coast as well. These bivalves live a few centimetres under the sand, that’s why fishermen have specific dredgers. They become rare and expensive, especially during festivities in the end of the year. Vacuum packaging can be proposed for exports.

    Britain lobsters

    They are characterized by its bluish colour and its single taste! They are fished thanks to lockers on the Britain coast. Lobsters live in the limit of the zones discovered by the tide and can go down until 60 meters. They roundly shed its coat once a year: i.e. they separate from their carapace to create a larger one.

    Crab-brown

    The large sizes crab-brown become rare on the Britain coasts. On the other hand the small one abounds on the Irish coast. It is what you often find to sell in your fish shop.

    Others

    “La Paimpolaise du Large” proposes crabs-stone, lobster-spiny, whelks, periwinkles, and other shellfish as well.
