As a representative union of the shipbuilding industry, the issue of renewal and modernization of the fishing fleet is a problem that the GICAN (the French Maritime Industry Association) examines on behalf of its members: shipyards, equipment manufacturers, system builders, design offices, etc.

Through its presence on the stand of Bretagne Pôle Naval and its animation of the round table “From prototype to reality, which ships to renew the fishing fleet?”, the Association wishes to work alongside companies interested in the renewal of the fishing fleet, to achieve synergy in order to design, develop and maintain in France competitive, ecological vessels that maximize the profitability of fishermen.

The GICAN, through the Filière des Industriels de la Mer, works to promote the emergence of technical solutions that improve the energy efficiency of vessels, through a “Green ship” roadmap shared with the State. The Association acts as the secretariat for CORIMER (Conseil d’Orientation pour la Recherche et l’Innovation des Industriels de la Mer), which guides the industry’s public aid and projects.
