Shellfish sites

Destination Pornic has a very strong shellfish activity.

La Plainaise, bouchot mussels in La Plaine-sur-Mer : the flagship product of the summer holidays! 2% of the national market, 50% of the mussel production of Pays de la Loire (about 200 tons per year) ... regular mussels in terms of flesh, size and quality ... humm what you feast!
You can taste it directly in the restaurants of our territory or during the famous "mold festivals" organized during the summer by certain associations of the Côte de Jade. To discover the mussel culture, go to the shellfish area in La Plaine-sur-Mer, during guided tours of SAS Baudet.
