Quelle requalification paysagère des espaces ostréicoles aujourd'hui en pleine évolution ? Cas sur le territoire de la Communauté d'Agglomération de La Rochelle

Abstract : The oyster-farming shapes the landscapes at sea and on land. At sea, the oyster beds are visible in the course of tides; on land, constructions mark the coastline. The oyster swamps, sometimes, link these two spaces. Thus, by these various places of production, the oyster-farming is situated on the boundary of the marine and landed environment (Legué-Dupont, 2004), and that is what creates its landscaped wealth. The Conurbation of La Rochelle includes 7 oyster sites. Their setting-up is linked to the geomorphology of the territory, characterized by the oceanic movements, and to other economic activities dependent on the ocean: mussel culture, salt production… The oyster production of the territory ends by a maturing in oyster swamps. These swamps enabling to give a particular character to the oyster are fitted out in swamps and fed by the fresh and marine water. The 7 oyster sites possess varied structures but gathered by common landscaped codes. Today, the oyster activity of La Rochelle suffers from numerous threats on its constituent elements, mobile such as the oyster or the water, or immobile such as the littoral space or the professional equipments. Weakened by these threats, the traditional oyster landscapes will have to be protected and valued by means of projects in the territorial scale. Sites with strong stakes will be the object of limited projects.
