In 2006, almost 30% of marine products came from aquaculture. Oysters and mussels accounted for the bulk of aquaculture output. In 2008, the quotas awarded to France under Council Regulation (EC) No. 40/2008 of 16 January 2008, amounted to 287 308 tonnes. However, through transfers with other member states, France was able to increase its fishing opportunities to 300 634 tonnes (mainly sole, mackerel, cod, anglerfish, black scabbardfish, nephrops and bluefin tuna).
