Granvilmer, The sea reveals all its flavours

Who are we ?

  • A cooperative of independent, small-scale fishermen whose mission is to maximize the benefits of their catch for members and also to represent them, by means of a special partnership agreement, within the local producers association, the Organisation de Producteurs de Basse-Normandie (OPBN).

    Granvilmer’s daily presence on the quaysides of Lower Normandy helps to support prices at the fish auctions.
