Fish locks or fisheries are fixed fish traps, consisting of a wall 500 to 700 metres long. They have the shape of a horseshoe more or less symmetrical depending on the configuration of the foreshore on which they are built.
You can catch different species of fish: bass, sea bream, orphies, mules, mules, mackerel and conger eels.
The Breeze Swamp
The Marsh of the Breezes has been conquered by man on the sea. This natural site is now recognized for its biological richness. Its mosaic of soft and salty wetlands, reed beds, meadows and woods is at the origin of this richness. They are home to a remarkable population of orchids and many species of breeding or migrating birds. The heron is its privileged host.
Enjoy the site freely, the hiking trails, a sports course and games for children have been set up for the enjoyment of all.
