New fishing unit, that has recently been incorporated in Chef-de-Baie fleet, J'Ames Le Ricard II was formerly registered in Lorient as "Les Menhirs".

Founded during the Xth century on a rock surrounded of marsh, La Rochelle, a fishermen village, becomes with the wire of the centuries an important port, with the cod "Grande Pęche" on the benches of Newfoundland since the XVIth century, and the development of industrial fishing within the XXth century, until the 60's.

Since then, with the successive crises, the number of fishing vessels didn't cease decreasing. Industrial fishing gradually disappeared, benefitting an artisanal fleet. The Port of La Rochelle always took part in the economic development of the city; if the boats are fewer today and the unloadings weaker, the fishing sector heritage has been dramatically affected: what's more tends to be deny and scorn their maritime history.

In 1994 the new harbour of Chef-de-Baie is created, allowing a computerized sale, a total control of the chain of the cold and the respect of the medical standards into force. Its technology, allied with its establishment, made it a genuine useless commercial platform of the products of the sea: subjected to the internationalization of markets, the fish trade was thunderstruck of full whip by the fishing crisis of 1993, involving an important fall of the number of vessels. Only a dozen trawlers managed to bypass this dramatic episode.
