Since 1982, Lozac’h Marée has been based in Concarneau, one of the ten biggest fishing ports in France.
Located in the fishing port of Concarneau, the company has found a perfect balance between traditional and modern techniques.
Some hundred fishing vessels are registered at Concarneau, from 9-metre gillnetters to 80-metre seiner tuna boats and even sardine boats and trawlers. The smallest generally head out for the day while the bigger vessels can spend up to three months at sea.
We buy from the Cornouaille ports: Concarneau, Le Guilvinec, Douarnenez, Loctudy, Lorient and Roscoff.
We take special care to diversify our supplies in order to ensure we can supply our clients throughout the year with a wide range of fish, including blue fish, coastal fish species, whiting, haddock, white ling, monkfish, Atlantic pollock, cod and hake.
Part of our processing unit deals solely with sardines (prepared whole or filleted). To supply this specific product, we have direct partnerships and daily contact with sardine boats, giving us unique access to this resource. We ensure the freshness of this outstanding product by purchasing fish caught the night before, which is then processed by our units the next morning.
Using their know-how, our skilled teams select, process and prepare fish to fill our clients’ orders.
Sardines are fresh, whole fish from Brittany. They are deemed ‘fatty’ fish and live in dense schools in deep waters, migrating from the ocean to the coast in summer and back out to sea in winter. They are fished by sardine boats at night.
Monkfish have a large, flat head with fine, firm, lean, compressed, bone-free white flesh. It is an iconic species of Brittany’s fisheries.
Megrim is less well known than the lemon sole, however it has delicious firm white flesh. It is a lean flat fish, caught fresh by trawlers.
Haddock, often filleted, is a white-fleshed fish, tender and generous. It is fished in the coastal waters of the Atlantic.
White ling is a fish with firm white flesh and is most often displayed as long folded fillets. Its slender body is flanked by a dorsal fin in two parts: a short one by the head and a long one extending towards the tail. White ling is a wonderfully digestible fish.
Skate can be identified by its flat body with wing-shaped fins and long tail. This fish is gristly like shark.
Hake is one of the most caught white fish species in Europe. It is found along the French coasts and landed fresh. Hake has a unique flavour and texture and can be found in markets and shops year-round. This specialty of the Lorient region is enjoyed for its firm, white flesh.
Blue ling is a species of deep-water fish that continues to be caught and sold. Blue ling is a must-have white fish in fishmongers’ cabinets and is also one of the most consumed in France thanks to its delicate white flesh.
Cod has a delicate, flaky, firm white flesh. It can be found at markets and shops year-round. It has a long body with a head featuring a wide mouth and a chin barbel. Cod is sold as a whole fish, filleted or sliced.
Squid is a cephalopod with a soft body and white flesh. It is always fresh and is found along the northern France and Atlantic coasts. It has lean, firm, tender flesh.
