Cros-de-Cagnes has kept its traditional maritime activity, which has however changed over time.
Currently, fishing is practiced by a dozen motorized boats that, over the seasons, use the appropriate fishing gear: trammel net, gillnet, longlines …
Groundfish provide the bulk of this production, which amounts to about 40 tons annually, using 2 types of nets:
– floating nets for blue fish (sardines, anchovies, bonito),
– dragnets for monkfish, sole, sea bream and whiting (this type of net is 150 m long and goes down to a depth of 500 m with more or less large meshes depending on the fish).
In the evening, the fishermen are in their boats in order to unroll their nets and to withdraw them in the morning from 4/5 hours. The boats drift off the coast, usually from the nearby Nice Côte d’Azur airport to Marina Baie des Anges to bring back a catch (an average of 20 kg of fish) that is sold in the port (Halle aux Poissons), to local restaurants and to the Nice Liberation Market.
The fish arrives in the morning around 8 am and therefore guarantees absolute freshness. It is sold at the market and even more directly at the arrival of the boats. The fish still quivering, are divided according to their variety.
In addition, you will be able to benefit from the fishermen’s advice on how to cook them as well as from advantageous prices.
A “pointu” is a boat measuring 5 to 7 m long.
Built in ash, pine or oak, the “pointu cagnois” is a bit of a mix between the Genoese and the Marseilles pointu: it has a wider bottom to improve stability and to better rest on the pebbles, once pulled onto the beach.
The pointus are becoming increasingly rare and have gradually given way to small trawlers allowing the fishermen to increase their productivity.
On the Mediterranean coast, from Ventimiglia and along the coasts of the Alpes-Maritimes department, there is a species of fish that is highly appreciated by the fishermen of the region, by the local clientele, and even by tourists.
The “poutine” or bluefish is a fry that is used as food for tuna and appears as a cloudy-looking paste on the surface of the water. This particular fishing constituted a kind of privilege granted by the king of Sardinia before the annexation of the county of Nice to France, privilege granted to the fishermen based on the littoral of this territory.
The new European laws call into question the future of this fishery.
