Analyse des flux de produits de la mer en Cornouaille

Abstract : The concept of circular economy, one which proposes better use of existing natural resources, constitute a potential of development for the fishing sector in Cornouaille. This study is a predeployment diagnosis of a circular economy. The aim is to establish a qualitative and quantitative assessment of marine product circulation in the Cornouaille region of Brittany, France. The volumes of product circulating within the fishing sector and their exchanges between Cornouaille and outside the territory (import and export) are calculated by an important work of data aggregation and acquisition of complementary data through surveys. The volume of marine products circulating in Cornouaille is estimated at more than 160.000 tonnes, of which, 70% is imported and 50 % exported. The local extraction represents a volume of just 10% of the material consumed. Consequentially, large parts of the volumes in Cornouaille are shipped both to and from external regions, showing a dependency within the sector to geographically disconnected areas. Because of the complexity of the system, there are uncertainties around our estimates. However, this study gives the general trends of marine product circulation in Cornouaille towards a circular economy.
