|Régal Marée, a company
specialising in the processing and sale of fresh fish, was created
in 1983. Retrofitting with European standards was obtained with
the construction of new premises in 1996 (controlled temperature,
forward motion etc.)
As the vital link between producers and retailers, our trade as
fishmongers consists in the processing and sale of seafood products.
On the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer, the deep-sea fishing boats (boats
that basically fish grenadiers, emperors, saithe, coalfish, etc.)
land their catch every day from midnight onwards.
The inshore fishing boats (boats that fish hake, mackerel, cod,
etc.), arrive in the port around 4 in the morning and immediately
offload their catch. The fish are sold by public auction in Boulogne
from 6 in the morning.
We purchase our goods at the auction but also buy catches from
abroad, our aim being to offer our customers (hypermarkets and supermarkets,
agents, fishmongers etc.) the widest range of fresh goods possible.
The fish thus bought is checked and stored fresh in our workshop
until it is processed (filleted, packed Ready to Cook, as roasts,
brochettes, steaks, slices, etc.)
Around 7h30 a.m., spot prices are sent by fax to our customers,
and as orders come in, the fish is processed, checked, packed on
ice in food-hygiene standard polyester boxes and stored in the cold
room until it is routed to the bus station (departure according
to region at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.).
In this way, fish offloaded in Boulogne one day can be on the stall
in Nice the next.
