La pisciculture du Frioul : Provence Aquaculture

Provence Aquaculture was created in May 1989 and raises organic wolffish and sea breams in a “calanque” on the Frioul Islands, 3 nautical miles from Marseille.

Since 2002, Fanny and Aurélien, the managers of Provence Aquaculture, have produced, the first “Certified Organic” fish of the Mediterranean. The three guidelines governing the organic aquaculture production are:


– the respect of the environment
– the welfare of animals
– the well-being of consumers.
These fish farmers came together with five others in the PACA region who have chosen to cultivate the sea while preserving it, creating “Les Fermes Marines“ (Marine Farming).
You can find their organic wolffish and sea breams in several retailers, including supermarkets, wholesalers and fishmongers and also at the health food shops “La ruche qui dit oui” (located in Aix-en-Provence, Gardante, Les Pennes Mirabeau and Fuveau).
Facing the city, the islands named Pomègues, Ratonneau, If, and Tiboulen form the Frioul archipelago, offering a multitude of coves sheltered from the Mistral and the East wind. Very nice and easy to access, just 10 minutes from the “Vieux-Port” by shuttle boat, they are perfect for a made-to-measure incentive program that we can concoct for you.
The Provence Aquaculture fish farm is not open to the public. However, if you want a privileged guided tour for a seminar, for example, do not hesitate to contact us, we will take care of everything, e.g. fish farm visit, hotel bookings, shuttles to get there, rental spaces, catering, etc.
