Maréis is a place where you can find out all about the fishing profession and plunge into the history of fishing in Etaples. Step aboard for a guided tour engaging your senses of smell, sight and touch, on a journey around the local marine world and the different species of animals in the Channel and the North Sea. There are plenty of fun discoveries awaiting you; from the lips of the guide, a retired fisherman with lots of stories to tell; from the underwater camera positioned on the shoreline; or under the lights that reveal the 500 animals in the aquariums. The tour as a whole thus helps you understand what fishing, one of the oldest professions known to man, is all about.
