Peace in the bay (La paix du Golfe)

A film by Patrice Gérard. Production: Pois Chiche Films, France Télévisions. France – 52 min. – 2012.

The Bay of Biscay has long been the well-known fighting place between French and Spanish fishermen. In order to calm down the relationships between the fighters, IFREMER, Brussels and the scientists have organized the 10th campaign with a view to assessing the fish population. Soon after this campaign, the individual and transferable quotas were put into action. These ‘rights to fish’ –kind of – may toll the bell of small scale fishing.
