Pêcheries Océanes has been a specialist fish and seafood wholesaler since 1995. Located in Miniac Morvan, it has 2 processing units in Saint-Malo and the surrounding area. Saint-Malo is a key entry point for an entire economic sector and a multi-purpose port used for passengers, commerce, fishing, ship building and repairs, recreational boating, and ocean racing. Famous for scallops, spider crabs, whelk and various fish species, the port of Saint-Malo is also home to deep-sea fishing vessels.
Pêcheries Océanes boasts high quality sourcing thanks to its many partnerships with coastal vessels in northern Brittany and Normandy. We also buy from fish markets in Brittany, Normandy and even in Vendée: Saint-Malo, Erquy, Saint-Quay-Portrieux, Granville, Roscoff, Cancale, Le Croisic and La Turballe.
We offer a comprehensive range thanks to our diversified, balanced sourcing and we set the benchmark for cephalopods, including cuttlefish and squid. We also offer an extensive range of fish (skate, hake, Atlantic pollock, monkfish, houndshark and mackerel), shellfish (including scallop) and crustaceans.
Our experienced teams are extremely skilled in selecting, processing and preparing fish for our clients in France and abroad. Dressing and filleting is performed by hand at our processing units.
