This work follows the first phase of construction, which began in November 2023 and was completed in March 2024.

During this first phase, work involved the construction of a new dock along the beach area, to increase mooring capacity in response to the arrival of crab harvesters.

Dredging was carried out in front of the new dock, and a service area was set up at the base of the coastal wharf.

The second phase of work, scheduled to begin in fall 2024, will involve rebuilding the coastal wharf known as the “quai des côtiers”. This new infrastructure will provide fish harvesters with a safe, weather-resistant facility.
