Hide / Show Abstract

With landings totalling 631 000 tonnes in 2004 for a turnover of EUR 1.1 billion, France (including overseas départements – DOM) ranks third of European Union countries, with 11% of catches.
The French fleet makes nearly two-thirds of its catches in the north-east Atlantic, the waters of which wash the European coastline. Thirty per cent are made in the tropical waters of the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean (tuna fish in particular), and 7% in the Mediterranean. Metropolitan landings fell sharply in terms of tonnage (–8%) and value (–10.4%) compared to 2003. The three main species remain, in terms of value, tuna, monkfish and sole.
