Scallop fishing

Scallop fishing takes place between October and April.
It is highly regulated to protect stocks: 2 days' fishing a week for 45 minutes a day. It stops prior to the development of the coral (reproductive organ): it is the delicate flavour of the white part you will enjoy with an "Erquy scallop".

The fête de la Coquille Saint-Jacques (Scallop Festival)

takes place every April in each of the three main Côtes d'Armor fishing ports in turn (including Erquy).
Erquy : 15-16 April 2017. A convivial weekend dedicated to getting to know the famous shellfish: sea excursions, exhibitions and tasting events... in a festive musical atmosphere!
