The fishing port of Sète is home to trawlers, numerous small-scale fishing boats and the largest fleet of tuna seiners in the Mediterranean, all of which are located in the city center. The approaches to the fishing quays and the platforms are managed by the Port of Sète and are essential to the success of the fishermen’s business.
The parking of fishing boats in the city center offers the town of Sète an undeniable tourist and economic attraction, and ensures that the history of Sète’s culture lives on.
In the heart of the city, the fishing platforms are regularly used, and numerous events take place throughout the year, such as the traditional festivities of Saint Peter’s Day, Saint Louis’ Day and Escale à Sète, as well as events organized by Sète’s associations and the capture of films and series promoting the city’s heritage and its port. Port Sud de France strives to do everything in its power to reconcile cultural and tourist activities with the best possible conditions for the fishing industry in the Port of Sète.
The docks are intended solely for parking fishing boats.
