Launch of the new website of the fishing port of Lorient

Located in the heart of the largest fishing region in Europe, Lorient-Keroman is an exemplary port which has always been able to evolve and mobilize the port community around the challenges of the sector and show the way to sustainable economic development.

At the heart of this ecosystem, all the players share the same interests: the economic actors of coastal fishing, deep-sea fishing but also wholesalers, processors, personnel of SEM Lorient-Keroman, transporters, the world of research, fishmongers, mass distribution and the ship repair.

This Wednesday, May 18, the fishing port of Lorient Keroman is putting its new website online for the benefit of maritime professionals and the general public:

Based on the technical structure of the Lorient Agglomeration website, of which it is a variation, the new website of the fishing port benefits from ergonomics and a design adapted to technical standards and current uses of the web, in particular for optimized consultation on mobile and tablet.

“The port of Lorient Keroman is an essential ecosystem for the life and economic development of Lorient Agglomeration. It brings together all the trades in the fishing sector as well as research and training centres. Lorient Agglomeration wishes to build the port of tomorrow through numerous investments in the modernization of infrastructures and in innovation. This transformation of Lorient-Keroman must be accompanied by the deployment of current and interactive digital communication tools. The new website will allow as many people as possible to discover and learn about the many activities of France’s leading auction”.
